At home learning

Online tutoring offers the same high-quality experience you'd expect from your personal tuition but with a number of additional benefits.

Remember everything. Each online tutoring session with your tutor can be recorded, so the student can review it later. This helps them retain information and update their memory before that vital exam. This is especially valuable for older students studying STEM subjects and is one of the main reasons for choosing online tutoring over offline tutoring. Location is no longer a barrier. No matter where you live, you can find the perfect tutor for your child. Once you've found that tutor, you can stay with them, wherever you are, and wherever they are. There is no risk that tutoring will be interrupted by bad weather, accidents or vacation (unless you wish).

Online tutoring can make your life easier. There are many people whose schedules are hectic and finding one or two hours a week to adapt to tutoring can be a real challenge. Moving online opens up more time spaces and means tutoring can be done from anywhere with a decent internet connection. You also don't have to worry about cleaning the house before the tutor comes! There are no more excuses to be on online training. Even traditional schools are promoting e-learning among their students, so that crisis like coronavirus do not paralyze learning. Because that's one of the great advantages of online training: it's immune to viruses, alarm states and quarantines.

1. From wherever you want

The reason many students sign up for online training is also why it becomes an alternative when schools close: you can study from wherever you want. The living room of the house, your room, a café, the library, the beach... However, it is advisable that you always do it from the same place, and that it is bright, quiet, comfortable and that it facilitates your concentration.

2. Whenever you want

Forget about schedules. Online training is flexible, you can access the center, institute or university where you are enrolled at any time of the day. Do you concentrate better at night? Go ahead. Do you prefer the early hours of the day? Get on with it. You can connect whenever and for as long as you have available. One hour on Mondays, two hours on Tuesdays, none on Wednesday... you choose.

3. Combine it with whatever you want

The time and place flexibility is a great added advantage, and it is that you can combine your online training with your work, the care of children, a face-to-face course in another center or whatever you want. Hence online training is associated with reskilling, that is to the urgent professional recycling these days when old trades disappear while new ones emerge. A worker with an 8-hour daily day can learn a new profession without a problem if he decides to training online.

4. Accessibility

The network has no borders, so the offer of online studies is great. If, for example, you are fluent in English, you can also search for training in that language, which multiplies the options. The centres also tend to provide very specific studies and therefore easier to move to real employment.

The breadth and variety of supply has one problem: indecision. There's so much to choose from that doing so can be tricky. In this sense, our advice is that you always bet on practical studies, that give you guarantees that you will find work when completing the training or, at least, that you will have a good chance of achieving it.

5. More interaction

Sometimes it's easier to interact with others when they're on the other side of the screen than when we're in the same room. It happens with online training, where it's easier to post a message in a chat or throw a question on a forum than to do it in person. But e-learning is also characterized by encouraging interaction between teachers and students and making available to the student multiple ways to communicate with their teachers.

Studying online has so many advantages that more and more people are betting on it to learn a profession, recycle or form in certain skills.

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.
