    Abstract

    Event synopsis: NIACE are pleased to invite you to the Learning and Skills Research Network Conference which brings together practitioners from further and higher education, adult community learning, voluntary organisations and training providers who are interested in research and development in the Learning and Skills Sector. The theme of this year’s conference, professional identity and practice is of huge importance to colleagues working across the sector. The nature of professionalism and professional identity in current contexts continues to be problematic, contested, and debated. The conference will allow us to explore and debate the notion of professionalism, including questions around where, how and whether professionalism exists or is being eroded or developed (or not) for staff and students in the sector. The conference provides a unique opportunity to share interests and explore how research can help our understanding of the policy and practice of facilitating learning for young people and adults. The conference offers those who are conducting or using research the opportunity to inform others about it. We welcome contributions and participation from practitioners in: - Adult and community learning - Further Education - Higher Education - Learning and Skills Councils - Lifelong Learning Networks - Prisons - Private Training Providers - Trade Unions - Voluntary and Community sector - Workbased learning providers
