RESOURCES FOR FINDING ABOUT CHANGES IN FE SECTOR

Discussion in 'Further Education' started by shirtandtie, Mar 27, 2011.

  1. TES's FE Focus would be a start.
    But there are so many changes in FE, and it is such a broad church you may need to narrow your search.
    What kind of teaching are you interested in?
     
  2. And have a look at the IfL site, you don't have to join. They do have some interesting info that might be useful.

  3. One recent change is more people on full time PGCE Post-Compulsory courses and at the same time a reduction of FE lecturer jobs available. Please look at the low number of FE lecturer jobs available at present on TES.
    https://www.tes.co.uk/jobsSearchResults.aspx?parametrics=JOBCATEGORYCODE|10499&cmd=AddPm&val=JOBCATEGORYCODE|10811

    There are more jobs on http://www.fejobs.com/
    Look for your subject and see how many jobs there are across the country. Then look and see how many of these provide a wage you can survive on.

    I would urge caution when listening to PGCE course leaders who say there are skills shortages in FE - the course leaders need to fill the course to keep their own jobs so they will put a positive spin on things.

    Possible places for researching changes:
    IFL website: http://www.ifl.ac.uk/
    Guardian education: http://www.guardian.co.uk/education

    Here is a guide to working in FE: http://www.chelmsford.ac.uk/pages/employment/LLE21800%20Employment%20Guide.pdf
