The Future of Further Education Forum 2012 - New challenges and new chances #fefutures

More than ever, as budget restrictions take effect, it is vital that colleges, community learning services and work-based learning providers develop precise and informed strategies.
Cuts to the 19+Learning budget; a fall in student enrolment and the funding gap has resulted in increasing challenges to the education system across the board.
These difficulties provide an opportunity to look to new innovative ways to improve services; attract new students; make savings through shared services, smart procurement and technology, and look to global markets.
This annual forum brings together senior leaders and managers of FE and sixth form colleges; training providers and providers of adult education and work-based learning to discuss the future of the sector and address the challenges they will face.
Brian Lightman,General Secretary, Association of School and College Leaders

and losers’ or is this finally the opportunity to
create an efficient service that is fundamentally
more collaborative and productive?
• What will FE loans mean for the future of FE?
