However, we need to see government match this ambition with pace and urgency. Our recent report ‘Our plan for FE’ calls for the FE sector to receive critical attention, and more importantly for urgent investment and funding that has so long been denied it. To be sustainable, it must be fair to people from all backgrounds, for employers to be meaningfully engaged and for collaboration to be at the heart of the system.
To echo the conclusion from our recent ‘Future of FE discussion’, the time is ripe for FE to be ‘bigger, better and bolder’ and we look forward to supporting this important mission.
