The London LSRN (LLSRN) has been going strong since the 1990s, with Sai Loo and Rania Hafez as the current co-conveners. LLSRN offers a collegiate environment and space for a professional dialogue, where like-minded colleagues meet to discuss research, exchange ideas, and disseminate findings. The topics relate to the Further Education (and skills) sector, which we see as diverse, multi-disciplinary, and porous in its activities (such as the programme offers). We view this as one of the strengths of this sector, and it opens up opportunities for collaboration with other sectors. Our events are hosted in London thanks to the generosity of our members.
