FE News is an online Further Education Magazine covering the latest news across the entire Further Education and Work Based Learning Sector. FE News features regular news articles from experts in their separate Further Education specialist fields.

Read the FE News highlights of the week at www.femag.co.uk

As well as industry experts writing exclusive articles on their specialist subject areas, FE News also provides a press release submit service – where organisations within FE and Work Based Learning can submit their own press releases / articles for you to read.

FE News is the online news magazine for the Further Education, Apprenticeship, Work Based Learning and Employability sector. www.fenews.co.uk was established back in 2003, for the past 14+ years we have provided a positive digital platform for the FE sector to share best practice and innovation.

What makes FE News different?

FE News is a purely digital publication (and have been since 2003). We are FE Digital pioneers! We are known for our positive and sector building stories. We do not charge for audience subscriptions, so our audience can read articles and watch videos totally for free! We do not believe in 'pay walls' or charging audience subscriptions, we want everyone from the FE Sector to be able to freely read any of our articles or videos. 

The FE News Focus and Philosophy

Our focus and philosophy has always been to provide positive coverage of the entire FE sector (Further Education, Work Based Learning, Apprenticeships, Employability sectors, Awarding organisations, Public sector bodies, the learner and employers) drawing the many strands of FE together to enable positive sharing of ideas and strategies to help the entire sector work together to improve the learner and employer experience.

FE News have focussed on championing the voice of experts from the sector. Who better to understand and write about the challenges, the constant evolution of strategy than someone who is emersed in the sector on a day to day basis. As FE News has many authors and contributors from across the sector you can read and see the latest in emerging opinion, strategy and best practice from real FE experts. We also believe that your opinion and 'voice' are important and make a difference. So we encourage you to be a part of the debate, by getting involved in comments at the end of articles. 

Background and Purpose

Advertisement

We are a digital news publication, but over the past decade FE News have specialised in providing exclusive featured articles from experts across the entire FE sector to share their ideas. Since 2006 FE News have also brought you video articles, the FE News legacy filming from the main speakers at conferences across the sector have proved particularly popular over the past decade.

Our FE sector is undergoing constant change and the news and strategies have also changed as a result. The FE sector is so vast. Gone are the days of being the Cinderella sector, often over looked... FE is the opportunity sector and everyone is invited to the party (in true inclusive and opportunities for all fashion!)

In the Spring of 2016, V.7 of FE News was launched. The idea was to draw on the FE News strength of sharing innovative ideas and best practice through exclusive articles from experts across the entire sector. With the new site development we brought FE Community into the main FE News site (FE Community was developed as a stand-alone site in 2008) so that events, press releases and non-exclusive content (Sector news) could be incorporated into the main FE News site.

The new site development has taken the exclusive best practice and innovation articles a step further and created FE Voices to enable the entire sector to share ideas and write articles about the developments in their particular specialism. When FE News introduced FE Video into the FE conference circuit back in 2006, this move enabled everyone in the entire sector to share in the latest strategies and developments coming out of key conferences (rather than a select few who were able to attend the conferences). FE Video brought the voice of the FE strategists to the entire sector. The latest version of FE News has created a new voice for the sector (we thought FE Voices was an apt name for this new section), and enabled the entire sector to share best practice, innovation and strategies to improve the learner and employer experience.  

We hope you enjoy FE News, your voice makes a difference!

Who we are:

CEO and Head of Digital: Gavin O’Meara, FIRP, BA (Hons).

Gavin’s particular specialism is developing innovate digital solutions for clients. He is the best point of contact for advertising campaigns and he heads up videography and is overall responsible for Digital content and marketing. He set up and established FE News and FE Careers back in 2003, and although is now a lot greyer, you’ll still find him with a smile on his face. Gavin has been involved in the FE sector for the past 15 years. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals, he is classically media trained (although when he graduated said he would never work in media again, how things change!). He has also driven the Digital Marketing and Social Media content strategy for the past 14 years.

Gavin lives in Exeter, Devon. When he is not working he is mainly running around after his 4 children. When he has some down time likes to talk about firewood (our office in the woods really got to him!) He likes getting back to nature and splitting wood with a big axe... (best to avoid him during these times!).
