Join the NFEC Seminars


To support NFEC members, network and friends a series of Online and Face-to-Face seminars are scheduled for 2023. Focusing on Engineering, Technology & Science Education.

For this year's seminars we are taking a look at current and emerging power technologies, what are they and how will they impact technology education, or how will the technology education that we are providing impact on the green agenda. Is there really a demand for new skills or is it application and experience that will make the real difference.

What is required for our teaching staff and where will it come from, how can we facilitate staff development and aid the provision of teaching resources?

We encourage members and friends to join us for what we expect to be an interesting series of event.
