To commemorate our 25th anniversary we've produced a special video that looks at our work and how we can support training centres and FE colleges - please take a look!

BPEC Product Roadshows 2018

As part of our 25th-anniversary celebrations, we hosted four Product Roadshows across England during March and April 2018 for FE colleges and training centres. Each included a series of workshops covering our extensive product portfolio, new tutor and learner resources and an update on educational reforms.

Subsequently, there were break-out sessions whereby guests got the opportunity to ask industry experts from the BPEC team any burning questions.
