Paul Stonebanks OBE, CEO, Transform

UK-headquartered 3t Energy Group is the world’s foremost training services provider to the international #energy industry and works with major global names such as @BP_plc, @Shell, and @Total across its eight offices in Europe, America, the Middle East, and China.

On top of its market-leading training courses and state-of-the-art learning technology, 3t has created a specialist technology incubator within the Group that allows it to continue pushing the boundaries of Educational Technology.

Today (4 Aug),Transform, the world’s most technologically advanced, cloud-based learning platform is being launched to the education sector by3t Energy Group.

Through Transform, the Group’s decades of training expertise is now being released to schools and universities.

The Transform Platform

Transform is the world’s most sophisticated and advanced education and learning platform. It solves some of the biggest problems schools and universities face when managing and tracking their students’ progress: that without the right technology, keeping track and managing student’s progress can be inefficient, costly, time consuming and often ineffective.

Accessible online and offline, Transform’s dashboard allows schools and universities to seamlessly track every detail of students’ records and progress from one central platform. This is a marked change from some outdated practices, with many institutions still using various computers, systems and filing cabinets to track student progression.

A short video introducing and explaining Transform can be viewed here:

Learning and knowledge-retention has been dramatically affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, with many students unable to continue their studies without access to on-site lectures and classes . Transform helps remove those barriers, storing every bit of information and many learning tools in the cloud, meaning development is achievable at all times.

Institutions can tailor Transform’s software to create their own learning pathways for students and can even upload bespoke courses and questions. Students are able to track their progress on qualifications and degrees. 

Transform links institutions and students to all of 3t’s tech-driven immersive learning technologies such as R3, a bite-sized learning app that increases knowledge retention, Virtual Reality Training, and Augmented Reality Learning, 3t’s interactive knowledge-testing platform, and Video Learning. All of these features help to considerably increase and improve learning and competency, reducing time and money - and also often emissions - spent on travelling to classes and lectures.

Transform has been pioneered by CEO Paul Stonebanks OBE, one of the UK’s foremost entrepreneurs and also President of 3t Energy Group. Paul was awarded an OBE in 2016, having grown numerous businesses from scratch to become one of the leading names in the global training market.

Paul Stonebanks adds: “Transform uses 3t’s portfolio of blended learning technologies - the world’s largest - to drastically improve knowledge retention, which has been scientifically proven. We are already changing learning techniques across a wide range of sectors, particularly in the wake of the Coronavirus-driven upheaval to everyday life."

“There has never been a better time to give learning a shake-up.”

“Our technologies have already changed the way companies in the energy industry operate - we want to do the same for schools and universities. 3t is known for pushing boundaries and with Transform we are doing that yet again.”

“Education institutions will now be able to take advantage of continuous learning, for example through our R3 learning app, which automatically identifies and recommends learning areas that students need to brush up on."

“Transform is also scalable. It can be used by schools and universities of all sizes, from 50,000 students to those with just 1,000. Even by just an individual student who wants to streamline their development.”

“We also have a ‘marketplace’ solution for schools and universities, where we share our technologies with them to drive efficiencies.”

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.
