Yet even more funding cuts: How will you respond?

So, the SFA has spoken, announcing adult funding cuts of up to 24% that for some marks the death knell for Adult FE as we know it in classrooms and workshops across the country. Colleges can look forward to being dark, lonely places after 5.00pm, when each should really be at the front and centre of its local community, serving as the focal point of people development. Whatever did happen to that wonderful Government concept of ‘Total Place?’ The debate rages as to whether the sector was fully informed about the level of cuts long before they were announced, and those organisations duly appointed such as the AoC have made strong and…See More

Hi Gavin,

I am a trainer and specialise in preparing FE students for work placements and apprenticeships. The programme is called Shaping Attitudes for the workplace, and focuses on Behaviour and Relationships. It is interactive and engaing; using questions, quotes and scenarios to challenge students attitudes towards issues such as time management, ethics, other people's property to mention a few. I have run very successful sessions at Lewisham and Southwark Colleges with Higbury and George Monoux already booked.

You can read more about it here: http://www.divinecommunicationstrust.org.uk/shaping-attitudes/shaping-attitudes/
