Will the legacy of COVID-19 be a workforce better prepared for the unprepared?

@EastCoast_Coll will return to some commercial training from the 8th of June, with some teaching of year 12 students and apprentices recommencing from the 15th June, ensuring students gain licenses to practice to allow work progression. The College will continue to work with all students over the summer to guarantee progression and focus on vulnerable learner groups supporting mental health and improving social conditions.   As we look to the future, one thing is certain: the class of 2021 will look very different to previous intakes. As for the local businesses they serve, ECC does not have a masterplan handed down from the Government to implement. Rather, the Government advises and the College uses its own leadership to decide the best, safest and most-effective way to welcome students back to class. Our mission is to create a place of both learning and safety.

2019: Time for FE and HE to work in harmony?

Both Further Education and Higher Education must have looked back on 2018 as a troubled time, with disruption to funding, changes in policy and public confidence confused with 2019 heralding likely more change through Auger Review and the post-Brexit public finance apocalypse.
