Over the last few months the Government has announced a wave of proposals that will change the face of Further Education forever. Yesterday, our Vice President FE Shakira Martin launched our new research project Students Shaping Further Education with Sir Vince Cable, which will focus on the need for learners to be at the heart of the reforms.
In light of the Post 16 Skills Plan and the newly announced Technical and Further Education Bill, we have launched a new research project with Sir Vince Cable. The project will see Shakira and Vince visit different FE providers right across the country, discussing with learners the issues that matter to them most and ensuring that we continue to hear from learners what makes high quality and accessible further education. The end of the project will see recommendations that will benefit students and their communities.
You can read more about the project, and what Shakira and Vince have to say on it, in FE Week and TES.
