AGCAS Research Conference, Manchester

    Harnessing research in careers and employability services

    The inaugural AGCAS Research Conference will showcase the work of the AGCAS Research Group and disseminate research of direct relevance to the work of careers and employability professionals, including showcasing some of the research activities of AGCAS members.

    Come along to hear about what current research is telling us, how the research was/is conducted and how you can incorporate the findings and approaches into the work of your own service.


    There will be keynotes from Phil McCash (The University of Warwick) and Dr Ciaran Burke (Plymouth University).
