Largest fall in over 50s in work since records began! FE Soundbite Weekly Journal #636

Welcome to FE Soundbite Weekly Journal Edition #636

Sorry for the sensational title of this week’s FE Soundbite – but that is a very, very concerning trend that ONS is finding on the latest labour market figures.

We have a great sector response article here: Low unemployment masks largest fall in labour force participation among over-50s since records began!! Someone who is 50, has nearly 20 years left until retirement. This is a very worrying stat!

Have you liked the mini series from Campaign from Learning on Levelling up – this is a 18 part series with perspectives and views from across the sector. Well worth a cuppa (maybe a cheeky biscuit) and checking it out.

We also had three very cool AI and VR articles this week:

  1. Jisc on AI improving efficiency and efficacy, 
  2. How VR is a game changer by Bodyswaps and
  3. NCFE’s Dean Blewitt on how AI can support emotional and social development.  

So many cool articles for you this week in FE Soundbite.
