Digital Media Offers Opportunities To New Journalists, But Challenges, Too

Making a career out of journalism was once bound by a person’s ability to find a ladder to climb in local and national media. Today, the internet has enabled anyone with talent to carve a career, though this flow of free information has not always been a completely good thing. As outlined by The Guardian, the prevalence of fake news on the web has created a barrier to good reporting. This is just one of the problems facing modern journalists who are seeking to learn the trade, as more readers question their ability to harness the good aspects of digital media while avoiding the bad.

What Courses Should You Study To Become A Brand Builder?

The e-commerce world has turned branding into a specialism of its own, with new trends such as mobile shopping being decisive for the majority (59%) of buyers. Over half of all consumers surveyed by Think with Google (2019) said that they used Google to research items of interest prior to making a purchase. Global B2C e-commerce sales are expected to reach £3.8 trillion in 2021, indicating the competitive, ever-changing role of modern branding and marketing teams. If in the past, those wishing to work in branding typically completed a general marketing degree, these days, specialist posts such as that of Brand Manager are giving rise to dedicated courses centred exclusively on influencing a target market’s perception of a particular brand.

Securing The Right Course And Beyond: Aiming For Graduate Success In Marketing

The number of undergraduate degrees awarded in the UK is five times as big as it was in 1990. 50% of young adults now go on to higher education, compared with just 8-19% in the 1970s and 80s.

Supporting Students With Autism To Thrive In Further Education

Throughout England, 71% of students with #autism attend mainstream schools. Unfortunately, many of these schools are unequipped and uneducated about how to best support the needs of students with autism.

Changing Careers Later in Life By Furthering Your Education and Wellness

With more than half of British residents wanting to change their careers, the thought of doing so certainly isn’t unheard of, especially when it comes to wanting to pursue a passion. However, many may need further education in order to do so, and while options such as online schooling make the idea of going back to university more appealing, how you study has a major effect on obtaining your goals. With that said, having a balanced lifestyle can make for a more natural and alternative learning technique — thus helping you switch careers successfully.

Student Debt Set To Soar To £450 Billion

... So Being Financially Prepared Is Crucial As of March 2019, students in the UK owed £121 billion on their student loans. This number is set to rise substantially over the coming years, with the government anticipating student loan debt to peak at £450 billion by 2050. With this in mind, it makes sense to have a solid financial plan in place before you head to university, to prevent yourself from becoming another victim of the country’s student debt crisis.

Opening the Door to Further Education Without Prior Qualifications

Although over the last 20 years, there has been a large increase in the number of working age people with qualifications, there are still almost 100,000 children leaving education without basic qualifications.

Showcase Your Education To Secure Your Next Job Interview

Your resume is the perfect place to highlight all that you have achieved during your further education. According to CIPD, there were on average 19 applicants applying for every medium-skilled position and 24 candidates vying for each low-skilled job vacancy during 2017. With so much competition, it’s vital you arm yourself with a high-quality resume which will make you stand out from all the other candidates. So, when you’re fresh out of further education and are preparing your curriculum vitae, this is how to give yourself the best chance of securing an interview.

A World Of Work: Top Destinations For International Apprenticeships

We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
