You are invited to attend our forthcoming annual learning and teaching conference. We have chosen Beyond the Placement: Where Next? Employer Engagement: the myriad ways we interpret it, engage with it, challenge it and take it forward at Leicester as this year’s theme, with the intent of focusing our discussions and forward planning on the questions of where we are now in regard to our engagement with employers and with employability and where we might want to be in two years or five years or ten years. A number of colleagues in departments and colleges are already working with employers ‘beyond placements’. There is much to learn from them, and this conference also aims to identify a vision for future employer engagement in our teaching, curricula and academic offer that is widely shared and really exciting. There will be guest speakers, presentations and case studies from the Leicester community and an interactive ‘delegate challenge’. This is a conference that aims to set directions, make decisions and generate specific projects.

The call for contributions has been launched and we encourage both staff and students to contribute to the day through submitting a proposal by Monday 1 June, 2015. Further details and key dates can be found on the conference website http://www2.le.ac.uk/offices/lli/events/ltconference.
