Welcome to FE Soundbite Edition 723, 2nd December 2023: Absolutely FAB’ulous

This is the weekly e-newsletter and e-journal brought to you by FE News: ISSN 2732-4095. We know life is busy, so here is a snapshot of the latest announcements and epic thought leadership articles, from sector influencers and cool thinkers across FE and Skills this week on FE News.

This week we had the FAB conference. If you missed it… well here is our FAB’ulous round up (more videos to come next week):

Kion Ahadi announced as FAB’s new Chief Executive... I met Kion and I really like him, he has a really strong interest in AI and Data as well, which I think will be absolutely brilliant for everyone at FAB and for the future of Awarding Organisations to a really great appointment in my eyes. Here is our meeting Kion video interview.

We had a really cool chat with Michael Hanton, Deputy Chief Regulator at Ofqual about regulation in a new era, AI and development, encouraging innovation, parity of esteem and regulatory burden.

Congrats to all of the FAB award winners.
