Glyndwr University

Education Conference top of the class


Fifty past, present and prospective students attended Glyndŵr University’s inaugural education conference.

The University’s Catrin Finch Centre played host to the event, which was arranged to promote the Wrexham-based institution as a centre of innovation and excellence for teachers. Entitled By Practitioners – For Practitioners, it provided an opportunity for those in attendance to showcase their work and explore best practice with peers from across the region. 

The successful event comes after the Education team was ranked second in the UK and number one in Wales for student satisfaction, according to the Complete University Guide. The department also jumped 21 places to 37th overall. 

Opening proceedings, interim Vice-Chancellor, Professor Graham Upton, emphasised the importance of the forum in helping to develop the partnerships necessary to serve an ever-changing education and business environment. 

He said: “It is hoped that, as part of Glyndŵr University’s long-term objectives this education conference will enable us to better meet the needs and interests of our students, contributing to the development and prosperity of the North Wales region and beyond.”
