Which day is busiest

Established in 2003, FE News has been the specialist digital/new media news site for the further education, skills, work-based learning and employability sector.

Over the past 18 years, FE News has focused on giving our audience exclusive content from experts across the sector, particularly sharing best practice, innovation, expert opinion articles discussing FE strategy with videos and podcasts with experts sharing the latest developments in the sector.

In November 2021 as a part of our 18th anniversary celebrations, we launched a new FE News publishing platform, had a massive re-brand and refocus. As FE News has over 250 pieces of content live every week, we have now segmented content (via section and colour coded this) and are also progressing from solution led thought leadership articles into collective intelligence hubs around specific topics to help the wider FE, Skills and Employability eco-system with diverse voices, views and opinions on key topics like Apprenticeships, Skills, Fourth Industrial Revolution, Employability, Lifelong learning, EdTech etc.

As an open journalism publishing platform, FE News allows registered members to submit events, seminars, press releases, corporate blogs, and videos straight onto the FE News site, as well as start an educational advertising campaign.

Start Your Educational Advertising On FE News

Our most popular educational advertising options since 2003 have been our site wide display advertisements, which are next to the articles, videos, and podcasts. Our main headline banner advertising space is so popular that it is booked out for a year at a time! So please check for availability on the site wide advertising options. We also have several other educational advertising options, including homepage ‘section break banner advertisements’ and in-article adverts (on both our written word articles and videos).

We usually have availability for button advertisements (home page, End of Page… and it is worth checking on the In Article Button ads) and the Side Bar Button ads (which used to be our Skyscraper ads on the old FE News system), although we advise that you check for availability as the button ads are very popular. Side bar button ads start at just £450 + vat per month.

Educational Advertising for your Jobs on FE Careers

FE Careers has been the largest specialist job advertising site in further education, apprenticeships and work-based learning since 2003, helping you find your next job in learning and development or your next member of staff.

You can either run your specialist recruitment adverts through the FE Careers aggregator and applicant tracking services, or publish straight to FE News via an XML or RSS feed.

We can tailor a display campaign across both FE Careers and FE News, as the audience on FE Careers and FE News are slightly different.

On FE News, there is primarily an executive audience within the sector, so you can run an enhanced advertising campaign to reach ‘passive candidates’ who are happy in their role and not registered with another recruitment agency, but who could be tempted by your exciting new opportunity. Please click here to view our Executive Recruitment advertising solutions.
