  • Signposting the roads less travelled
    Maybe it’s because it’s New Year and the traditional time for existential angst. Maybe it’s because education and skills policy are arguably in a greater state of flux than at any time since the earlier 1990’s. Or maybe it’s because of the ever increasing costs associated with tertiary education coupled with diminishing certainty of its […]
  • How to scale wellbeing support
    The Universities UK lead on Wellbeing, Professor Steve West, has suggested that students should declare mental health problems on their application.  Not all students have a mental health problem of course.

    FE providers are constantly deluged with change. If you’ve been in the sector for long, you’ll have seen the 1980s style YTS morph into a Levy based scheme; HMIs vanish, and Ofsted emerge plus the advent of Academies, UCTs & now the Baker Clause. In fact, change has become the new certainty. So much so […]
