The full programme of over 150 speakers and more than 100 virtual events featuring talks, interviews, comedy, spoken word and 60 hours of on-demand content in The Grief School has been announced and includes: international grief expert David Kessler; palliative care doctors and bestselling authors Rachel Clarke and Kathryn Mannix; the UK's leading grief expert Julia Samuel MBE and bestselling authors Katherine May (Wintering) and Catherine Mayer (Good Grief: Embracing Life at a time of Death).

Dr Lucy Selman, Founding Director ofGood Grief, from thePalliative and End of Life Research Group at the University of Bristol, said: "This month marks a year since the first national lockdown - a year which has brought with it huge challenges and significant losses.

"Around the world, millions of people are mourning the deaths of loved ones, friends and family members at an extraordinarily difficult time, when social networks and our usual ways of coping have been profoundly disrupted.

"We are holding Good Grief Festival to bring people together for solace and support. We are delighted to partner with Marie Curie to shed light on the many dimensions of grief, and provide time and space to share experiences and remember those who have died."

The programme will combine practical help and insight alongside a creative line-up of events exploring love and loss, including What Harry Potter Teaches us about Grief, Reflections on Death + Dying, The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times, Finding Your Grief Tribe, and The Grief Gift: Finding Meaning + Purpose after Loss.

In The Grief School, you will find 60 hours of searchable on-demand content - including talks, webinars and workshops - relating to specific types of grief. Recorded at previous Good Grief events, contributors include Peep Show’s Robert Webb, GriefCast host Cariad Lloyd, Professor Alice Roberts, author Nikesh Shukla and chef and food writer Valentine Warner. This content will be available to watch whenever you like over the festival weekend.

Supported by charity partner Marie Curie, Good Grief Festival is also hosting six free virtual events for the National Day of Reflection - which Marie Curie is spearheading - on Tuesday 23 March. Gideon Coe (BBC Radio 6 Music) will explore the healing power of songs in grief, special guests including Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter will join together for A Moment of Reflection to mark one year since the first lockdown, and Anneka Rice and Dr Rachel Clarke will join a panel of thinkers and creators to consider how we can find hope and meaning beyond COVID-19.

Good Grief has also teamed up with the Loss Foundation to host a special Comedy Roulette night on Saturday 27 March, with a line-up of 11 comedians brought together by Tom Deacon.

It's free to attend all events over the festival weekend. Recordings will also be available to watch shortly after the festival on The Grief Channel, with closed captioning available. Sign-up to the Grief Channel for just £20 for one year and you will have access to all Good Grief events at your fingertips, just after they happen.

Good Grief is a collaborative event led by the University of Bristol and supported by charity partner Marie Curie and the National Lottery Community Fund.

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

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.

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.
