The winners of this year’s Print Futures Awards received their awards, which are grants of up to £1,500 to help people aged 18 to 30 years pay for training, at an event kindly hosted by The Rt Hon. the Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde and organised by The Printing Charity at the House of Lords on 20 July.

Baroness Dean, The Printing Charity’s 2017 President, said: “The awards have gone from strength to strength, with a record 275 applications and 78 winners this year. It renews my faith in the industry to see so many talented young people joining a very old industry but one that is now wide-ranging with modern technologies.”

Lord Black of Brentwood, Executive Director of the Telegraph Media Group and President Emeritus of The Printing Charity, said: “The winners are coming into an industry with a bright future. The speed of change is not only exciting but producing so many opportunities across the media sector for people with dynamism and a commitment to lifelong learning.”

Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity’s Chief Executive, said: “Our reach this year has been incredibly diverse, with winners from the Shetlands to Cornwall and industry sectors ranging from pre-press and papermaking to graphic design. This fantastic result has been achieved in partnership with colleges, universities, industry and trade associations. We believe in the sector’s future and that is what the awards are all about.”

At the event, The Printing Charity’s Chairman, Jon Wright, paid tribute to Terry Ulrick, the driving force behind the Print Futures Awards, who sadly passed away this year. Setting up the awards in 2003 to help young people train to work in print, publishing, packaging and graphic arts was one of his proudest achievements in a 50-year-plus print career.

This year’s winners are: Ben Abbiss, Jennifer Acton, Mary Ashcroft, Dieter Ashton, Amy Banda, Josh Bartholomew, Phyllida Bluemel, Laura Borrelli, Lily Bowden, Julia Bradley, Catriona Brazendale, Lucy Bryant, Catherine Buckmaster, Jodie Burr, Samuel Callard, Fiona Callingham, Lauren Campbell, Michael Cassidy, Ben Chamberlain, Szu-yun Chang, Hamish Chapman, Katharine Charleson, Benjamin Charman, Yin Yu Chen, Daniel Clark, Charlotte Coldwell, Emily Collis, Charlotte Cox, Stephanie Cox, Nicola Crane, Sarah Crookes, Costanza De Luca, Camilla di Liberto, Cecilia Dinwoodie, Jay Drinkall, Talitha Duncan-Todd, Rhea Evers, Charlon Flynn, Brandon Hartley, Alexandra Holmes, Kayleigh Hope, Georgina Hopkins, Lucy Hutchinson, Rosemary Iles, Georgia Irving, Emma Irwin, Gabrielle Keepfer, Susannah Keogh, Laura Lindley, Hamza Loonat, Julia Marco Campmany, Hannah McAdams, Jonathan McIntosh, Jordan Mellor, Adam Miller, Samantha Miller, Sofia Niazi, Natasha Onwuemezi, Nina O’Reilly, Linlin Pan, Holly Patrick, Hayley Pearce, Stefan Pintea, Thomas Read, Áine Ryan, Alexander Sharp, Danielle Shaw, Molly Slight, Christopher Smith, Marcroy Smith, Yosef Smyth, Niamh Tierney, Louise Upton, Lucy Vallance, Sam Wallis, Charlotte Whiting, Eleanor Wyatt, and Maria Zygogianni.

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 Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 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, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

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.
