4th  International Research Conference

Organised by the Association for Research in Post-Compulsory Education (ARPCE)

in Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford, UK

Friday 10 July – Sunday 12 July 2020

Conference theme: Research in Post-Compulsory Education

This international conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in post-compulsory education from many different countries. It provides an opportunity for participants to spend 3 days in inspirational surroundings sharing ideas and projects with like minded people. The ARPCE committee is keen to attract early career researchers, those with teaching or professional roles in post-compulsory education, as well as established researchers and journal contributors. Contributions on any aspect of post-compulsory education are very welcome, including professional education, adult learning, further and higher education, work based learning, community education. Presenters may focus upon theory, practice, or methodology, and be prepared to share their work in a supportive and inclusive learning environment. To mark the 25 year anniversary of the Journal, Research in Post-Compulsory Education, we also invite contributors offer a brief historical overview of their research field over the last 25 years that adds contextual interest and supports the development of their work.

As conference places will be strictly limited, Conference Paper abstracts up to 250 words should be submitted as soon as possible and no later than 31 January 2020, via the ARPCE website Alternatively there will be an opportunity to submit a Conference Poster. All proposals will be reviewed by the ARPCE Committee. Accepted papers will be allocated a 30 minute session. Presenters will be allowed 20 minutes to summarise their research and the balance of time will be open for discussion of the paper.

Participants may book into College accommodation for all of the conference. Day attendance will also be possible.

Following the success of the previous three ARPCE Conferences at this venue in July 2014, July 2016 and July 2018, we expect there will be keen demand for places, and therefore early application is advised.
