CoLRiC Events 2015

After a successful and inspiring day in London on Friday 8th May we are looking forward to our second event in Birmingham - there are still places left so don't miss out!

  "feeling charged"


The Edge: do you have the edge or do you find yourself close to it?

Wherever you are at the moment, come along to one of the CoLRiC events this spring and get inspired.

When and where

  • Friday 8th May, Friends House, Euston, London
  • Friday 19th June, Birmingham and Midland Institute, Birmingham (directions).

The programme will include:

  • Having the Edge: presentations from winners of this year's Best Practice Awards. They will be sharing some of their ideas and innovation.
  • Getting the Edge: sharing service approaches to information literacy. We will examine case studies of different types of colleges including a 6th form college, a college with extensive HE provision and an online IL offer, and a General FE college with a student support approach.
  • Close to the Edge: the experience of one college that has been to the brink and back. The presentation will demonstrate that through tenacity and belief, a service can survive some pretty extreme circumstances and offers some strategies for coping when times are tough.


Each day will run from 10.00 am - 3.30 pm, with lunch included. Cost only £75 for CoLRiC members; £100 for non-members.
