Wapping High School

As educators are making extensive use of online learning solutions providing a safe and supportive online learning environment has become increasingly important. Wapping High School has long provided an education experience that is student centred and tailored to individual needs supported by a progressive, modern and technology rich learning environment and wanted to ensure that with online safety it was in the vanguard of outstanding practice taking the decision to deploy Safeguarding 24.

The team behind Safeguarding 24 spent time working with educators and safeguarding experts to explore the challenges educators are facing with such a large increase in online learning driven in part by the coronavirus pandemic, and it was clear that both teachers and students would appreciate the ability to evidence anything they experience in online learning spaces that may be a concern and to bring this to the attention of safeguarding professionals in a way aligned to good safeguarding practice. This need was the driver behind the Safeguarding24 solution.

Our curriculum is high quality, imaginative and supported by a rich digital environment with a focus on ensuring that all students develop the highest quality skills in reading, numeracy and literacy and communication. We are committed to providing an outstanding online learning experience and by working with a leading Google for Education Premier Partner we have been able to deploy the latest technologies helping to keep our learning communities safe online. Safeguarding 24 helps our students to raise any concern they may have in an online space, and for our staff it provides an immediate insight into any issues relating to a student who may be dealing with cyberbullying or a wider issue. For our school, working in partnership with expert trusted advisers ensures we can deploy the right technologies with confidence rather than hope we are procuring the right tools. C-Learning has a long history of collaborating with leading educators and authentically listening. We are looking forward to collaborating in the future and to continuing to push forward with delivering first class learning opportunities’.

Safeguarding24 enables a user to quickly and easily capture a concern on the screen including a screen grab, record the nature of the concern and activate it’s secure transmission to an authorised safeguarding practitioner in a given organisation. The software is easy to install and appears on the browser as a blue shield and was developed in consultation with leading safeguarding professionals and educators making extensive use of online learning technologies such as Google for Education.

Trudie McGuinness, Founder & Director of The Essential Training Company said

With so much of our activity moved online, it is vital that we seek to create as safe a virtual space as possible online. With Safeguarding24 any online safeguarding concerns can be reported immediately. It gives peace of mind to staff and students alike that they are being supported in the virtual space. They don't need to worry about something while they work remotely as getting support is just one click away. When I was a Designated Safeguarding Lead, I would have welcomed this back up in helping my team and me to safeguard effectively.

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 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.


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.


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.
