Cheshire based training company, MiMentor continues to make its mark in the training world by becoming an Official Training Provider Partner of CIMSPA (The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity).

MiMentor (the training division of Enigma Digital Services) provides leading global digital learning and development programmes on their own innovative platform which combines multimedia visuals and a learning experience which is second to none.

Specilaising in sports coaching, MiMentor provides a holistic approach covering topics from performance psychology, nutrition and sports science, to essential personal development skills such as undertanding emotional intelligence, effective communication and reflection, through to leadership, management and wellbeing themes. All programmes involve underpinning academic and scientific theory supported by  practitioner-led application; explaining the ‘why’ and showing learners ‘how’.  

MiMentor have collaborated with experts from across the football industry to curate these programmes, including those who have worked in the Premier League,  EFL, MLS and FA, including coaches, managers, players, performance psychologists, coach-mentors, and sports scientists alongside professionals from leading academic institutions. Programmes are accessed on-demand, allowing CIMSPA members to develop at their own pace in their own time, and are supplemented by useful downloadable resources, group webinars, and discussion forums, all supporting personal growth and career development. 

Jennie Bowmer, Director for MiMentor said

“As with most things, MiMentor was born out of necessity. Having worked in the sports training industry for over a decade, we recognised that digital and educational habits were changing; digital consumption was fast becoming the norm to engage and digest information, yet this wasn’t being applied to the learning and education space.”

“MiMentor was therefore born to create a learning environment for the modern world; it considers the way people consume media and applies this to learning. It is designed to be intuitive and sleek, media-focussed, and with the capabilities that individuals expect and need during a time of digital transformation. If you go onto the platform, you will see there is a layout and usability that is in line with companies such as Netflix and Amazon Prime so actually, a lot of people will instinctively already know how to navigate around the MiMentor platform. This means that one of the barriers to online learning has been taken away before learners have even started.”

“As well as ensuring we provided a great platform, we were also determined to provide great content which was engaging, relevant and applicable. To have the likes of Philippa McGregor, Grant Downie OBE, Sarah McQuade and Jamie Godbold on board bringing their incredible wealth of experience of the sector, speaks volumes for the belief and need for content like this. We are delighted to be recognised by CIMSPA as an official training provider partner and looking forward to welcoming CIMSPA members to our programmes”

Clare Dunn, CIMSPA Head of Partnerships added,

“We are delighted to have MiMentor onboard as an Official CIMSPA Training Provider Partner to provide high quality digital education and CPD for all those who work in sport and physical activity. I am sure many sector-professionals will benefit from their online programmes and we look forward to growing our partnership with MiMentor in the future.”

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.
