FE News is the largest online news site for the Further Education, Skills / Work Based Learning and Welfare to Work sector, we have been around for nearly 10 years (no mean feat for an online business). FE News was established in September 2003, our focus is covering news across the entire sector. FE News is a specialist news site for the sector, in every FE week we provide our support to help build the further education division. Our content is free to view, we are a 'green' news provider because we don’t produce a paper-based publication that uses up precious resources. Even our job advertising site www.FEcareers.co.uk is free to view the latest job vacancies (we have more than 1200 job vacancies live per day and more than 700,000 job seeker user sessions per month). Between FE News and FE Careers we have well over a million page views per month, every month.
We are lucky enough to have our head office based in the middle of a working Forestry Commission Woodland (we rent our offices from the Forestry Commission at the Cookworthy Forest Centre), it is an amazing environment to work in, we love taking a moment out to walk in the woods, spot some deer and get the creative juices flowing. The area is a working woodland (as most Forestry Commission woods are) and the trees are sometimes felled for a whole manner of uses. It is pretty alarming when you walk in a recently felled area of the forest, it really hits home why FE News must maintain an online presence.
We work to a strong belief that all of our news should be fair and sector building. Our aim is to unite the sector to enable us to all work more effectively together to provide greater opportunities for learners. This is no mean task because the Further Education sector is so vast, College, Training Providers, Welfare to Work, Employability, Awarding Bodies, Funding Agencies, Apprenticeships, Prison Education, ESOL, Adult Learning / Education - the list can go on and on. Our aim is to provide an insight into the latest developments across the sector. We really appreciate the time shared and spared by our column writers - they are the policy makers and innovators of the sector and our audience enjoy weekly insights and pearls of wisdom from these specialists, so they can plan how to best deliver future learning for students.
What type of content do we publish every week?
We have a range of news styles for you to enjoy. This ranges from column writers who are subject matter specialists across the sector, video interviews with speakers from conferences and events - we have published more than 250 video interviews - news analysis of emerging trends across Further Education, Skills and Welfare to Work.
Every FE week we feature specialist column writers who are experts in their respective areas of Further Education. The columnists are experts in their field and set the policy for the sector. Every week FE News column writers provide an insight into the latest policy developments so you can keep your finger right on the pulse.
