Preparing for AI: Essential considerations for Independent Training Providers

Week of VocTech 2023

As part of the Week of VocTech 2023, the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) is bringing together leaders from across the ITP sector for an in-person roundtable on preparing for the impact of Artificial Intelligence on education, adult learning and independent training providers.

In a world where AI-powered digital tools are transforming what and how we learn, what does the future of adult learning look like and what can ITPs do to prepare their organisations?

Ample time will be provided for discussion, questions and developing links with senior peers. Content will include:

  • The foundations of AI;
  • Current business implications;
  • AI in education and training: horizon scan and best practice from across sectors;
  • Ethical considerations;
  • Selection and evaluation of AI tools; and
