Book your place for the Festival of Student Governance!

Reserve your place now for our dynamic Festival of Student Governance 2022, held at the Association of Colleges National Conference in Birmingham! Unloc in partnership with the Association of Colleges organise this unique opportunity each year to bring together young people from across the UK for governance training that ensures they are knowledgeable, supported, and prepared for the responsibility being given to them in their role.

Student governors will become equipped with practical skills and knowledge, hear inspirational guest speakers, and develop abilities that will empower them to deliver positive influence and change in their college. 

They’ll develop leadership abilities and attend workshops that will focus on key skills and practical knowledge for governance. Importantly they will also have the opportunity to meet and network with clerks, principals and other student governors from around the country.

Our dynamic one day conference includes overnight accommodation, interactive workshops, bespoke training, inspiring guest speakers and a networking dinner. Student governors’ attendance to the event will also recognise your college’s continued commitment to providing the very best support and training to its governance representatives. 

A camera crew will be present as we connect with delegates to capture their thoughts and feelings on camera. It’s a fantastic opportunity for you or your representatives to talk about their real experience as a student governor, raise their profile, and show your college as an organisation dedicated to furthering the student voice.

What’s The Programme?

Delegates will check into the Ibis Birmingham New Street Hotel from 5pm on Monday 14th November. At 7pm that evening there will be a networking dinner event where all attendees can meet, get to know each other, enjoy a meal and hear from our inspirational guest speakers. 

The next morning on Tuesday 15th November, delegates will enjoy breakfast, then head to the Birmingham International Convention Centre for a 9am – 4pm conference event, filled with engaging workshops, training, lunch, guest speakers and immersive activities. 


Thanks to a heavily subsidised ticket we are pleased to offer delegate passes at £95 each. This includes the conference, all food, entertainment, and overnight accommodation. 

Delegate passes are offered on a first come first served basis. There are a limited number of places available – so be sure to reserve a place for you or your delegates sooner rather than later.
