NEEC 2010 welcomes you...

Within us all is the potential to learn more, grow spiritually, contribute to society and build communities.   This potential needs identifying, developing and nurturing in young people.  It is the responsibility of all the professions who work with them to foster this potential and enable young people to value who they are and to be comfortable with themselves and others. Such professionals are rewarded by seeing young people grow, and by learning themselves about the joy of education and a future full of hope.

In York we take a holistic view of "potential".  For some it will mean taking a first step, travelling on a bus unaided, or writing a letter. For others it may mean competing at the Olympics, or reaching the very highest levels of achievement in science, politics or the arts.  Alternatively it might be about reaching a potential that is intrinsic and not visible to the outside world: discovering an inner being and a deeper understanding of who we really are.

NEEC 2010 will explore these issues from a range of perspectives - against the backdrop of a city which not only offers plentiful opportunities for quiet reflection but also energises and delights all who visit it.

The conference will offer an exciting learning programme with:


Opportunities to hear and engage with internationally recognised speakers
Opportunities to hear from senior national politicians (we expect the Secretary of State to attend)
A series of challenging learning forums – some of which are located at our satellite venues –
  The University of York, York St John University and York College
Networking opportunities throughout the Conference and Gala Dinner
A Civic Reception in York Minster, one of the great cathedrals of the world
An exhibition area for stakeholders and suppliers to showcase their services
Scope to challenge keynote speakers on issues of regional, national and international significance.
Extensive advertising opportunities
