How endorsing a “changemaker” mentality can help young people shine as they enter the world of work

When 800,000 graduates and school leavers prepare to enter the job market this year – and 150,000 A-Level students now looking for university places – finding the next step of their journey will seem ominous for many students. Having overcome the turbulence of a pandemic to complete their studies, the world that lies in wait shows no sign of sympathy. Recent data shows that entry-level job openings are 40% lower now than before the pandemic arrived and the class of 2021 will be joining a talent pool already bloated by unemployed graduates from years previous.

What does the future hold for University Students in 2021?

From necessity to choice: how higher education can support teachers in hybrid learning

The last academic year was probably one that some students would hope to forget, not just for the disruption the pandemic has caused to social lives but also for the lack of engaging education received. Despite Covid19 restrictions in UK universities being lifted, academic institutions are being forced to make decisions about the restrictions they feel they will need to impose for the next academic year. Students might see this as an all clear to return to in-person learning but some may be reluctant to return to the classroom.

What is the future of Proctoring?

ProctorU, one of the largest and oldest remote test proctoring and security providers, announced this past week that it was doing away with its AI-only proctoring service. Going forward, the company said, they’d use only trained, human test proctors - a service they always offered. 

Helping young people amplify their strengths for future success and happiness

International Youth Day 2021: Bringing the Younger Generation Back into the Workplace

To mark #InternationalYouthDay, FE News spoke to five industry leaders to get their insight and advice for young people in the workplace With Millennials and Generation Z accounting for over two-thirds of the UK workforce, we’re acutely aware that our younger employees are the key to a successful future. Yet, with the chaos of the past year and a half, recent research would suggest that the next generation is being forgotten. In fact, a 2020 report from Institute of Student Employers (ISE) predicted a decline in the graduate labour market by as much as 14% by the end of 2021. And, not only are younger people struggling to enter the workplace to begin with, but once there the impact of COVID is still being felt greatly.

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.


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.

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.
