The Further Education (FE) sector has a key role to play in the future of regional economies especially as we deal with the implications of Brexit and an international pandemic. The Government has made a promise of delivering life-long learning and seems to put FE at the heart of this strategy. It is crucial to understand the implications of the measures outlined and how these will be implemented.
We will cover:
- A background to the White Paper and setting the context for change
- A look at some of the detail and legal implications
- What does this mean moving forward
- Q & A
Why tune in?
This session aims to give leaders an understanding of the current position of the White Paper and the potential implications. It also gives an opportunity to share knowledge and experience as well as ask questions of the panel.
Joanne will be joined by guest speakers, Chris Nicholls, Area Director, Association of Colleges (AoC North East and Yorks & Humber) and Jonathan Walker, Policy Director, North East Chamber of Commerce (NECC).
Chris will provide a background to the White Paper and discuss some of the initial feedback from the Further Education sector both in the region and further afield.
Joanne will provide an update on some of the legal implications of the White Paper and for the sector.
We will also cover what measures from the White Paper mean moving forward, with an update from Jonathan who will explain how business organisations such as the Chamber will work alongside colleges to meet future skills needs and support projects from the Strategic Development Fund.
