Surpass Conference

6-7 October 2022 – Liverpool

The Surpass Conference, presented by BTL, is an annual gathering for members of the innovative Surpass Community. In 2022, we’re delighted to announce our conference will be taking place in Liverpool, from 6-7 October.

Delegates attend to learn about the latest features in the market-leading assessment platform, share their knowledge and experience, and help each other make the most of this highly respected assessment authoring and delivery platform. In addition to working with BTL to shape the roadmap of Surpass, delegates will look at the future of assessment on a global scale, and how our community can promote best practice in assessment.

City & Guilds benefit from being part of the Surpass Community by being able to talk to other people going through the same type of experiences, requirements and changes in the industry.

Opportunities to collaborate on features like the audio question type are one of the many benefits of being an engaged member of the Surpass Community. By working with other organisations who had a set of requirements which aligned with WJEC's, we’ve been able to achieve a more advanced piece of functionality for a fraction of the cost of what we would have had to invest if we were to do it on our own.

The Surpass Conference highlights the fantastic sense of community the [Surpass] team have fostered. It was hugely beneficial and plenty of fun, too. Highly recommended.
