There are seismic shifts happening across the UK - from demographic change, to technological revolution, from the changing demands of the labour market, to evolving attitudes and expectations of individuals. If we are to meet these challenges, then colleges will have to be at the heart of this. The Independent Commission on the College of the Future is asking the simple question – what do we want and need from our colleges in ten years’ time? The Commissioners are holding roundtable and workshop events with a broad range of individuals and organisations across the UK, and are meeting as a Commission five times throughout the year. They are supported by an expert panel, who is feeding in throughout the process. A final report will be published in Spring 2020.
In the wake of the pandemic and as Northern Ireland works to re-ignite its economy, a new report from experts in education and business is arguing for a bold acceleration of measures to better capitalise on the power of colleges. They believe this will support the economically inactive and drive a more prosperous and innovative future.
The conversation about the future of colleges is alive and kicking in the UK, and with the world changing at pace, it comes as no surprise that it is a hot topic across the globe. At a time of heated debates around Brexit, it is very welcome that political developments do not inhibit the UK’s wider ability in areas such as education, to optimise the value of building long term collaborations with its international partners so that mutual insights and lessons can be shared to enhance local practices.
Having worked in the hospitality sector for over 30 years, developing new talent and educational opportunities for the industry is something that I am very passionate about and committed to contributing to.
