FE Careers: Click here to further your career in learning and development

 

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.

In 2018 we went through a major development to celebrate our 15 th anniversary, where we developed two jobboards with a single dashboard: One was FE Careers for your Learning and Development staff and the other was for Apprenticeship vacancies on Apprenticeship Job Search to support our existing Learning and Development clients in fulfilling their own roles.

FE Careers and FE News are a part of Chimeara Limited. FE News is the largest digital news site dedicated to FE, Apprenticeships and Employability. FE Careers, FE News, Apprenticeship Job Search and Training Noticeboard are all members of the Chimeara family. Chimeara established FE Careers and FE News back in 2003 to address the current and future needs of the learning and development sector.

Chimeara Limited is a social enterprise established back in 2000 to support social mobility and address the Apprenticeship and Skills needs of the UK. 10% of Chimeara’s profit goes to charity and we constantly re-invest to help enable our social mission become a reality for learners, communities, employers and providers every single day.

In 2017 and 2018 Apprenticeship starts had fallen through the floor (down 40%!), but on the plus side and mainly due to the Apprenticeship Levy there was a huge growth in Apprenticeship opportunities for levels 5, 6 and level 7 (level 6 are Degree Apprenticeships and Level 7 were Masters level Apprenticeships).

When we launched FE News and FE Careers in 2003 it was to provide a voice for vocational, technical and work based learning. For many years we have also been campaigning for the highly regarded Meister Apprenticeship style system to be implemented in the UK.

FE News and FE Careers have been supporting the FE sector for over 15 years, but when the Apprenticeship starts began to suffer serious decline, particularly for 16-24 year old Apprentices and with SME’s – we decided it was time to develop a radically new concept, to give additional support to the Work Based Learning sector, Apprentices and employers.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
