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

30% off construction and engineering teaching staff recruitment fees from Protocol

Protocol is pleased to offer a fantastic 30% off permanent Construction and Engineering academic and management recruitment fees throughout March 2015.*You may already be aware of our sector leading temporary academic staff recruitment services but did you know that Protocol also supports FE providers with their permanent recruitment needs?   Our permanent recruitment service offers the same efficiencies and candidate quality processes our clients have learned to expect from Protocol and like our temporary candidates we have experienced permanent candidates across the entire UK.  Eva Sinclair, Director of Client Services said; “At Protocol we’ve been placing permanent candidates into colleges and FE institutions for many years, but we’re aware that not all of our clients and the wider sector know about this additional service we provide.

Hi Gavin, we incorporate all sorts of things in to our activities:

Expedition planning
Group management
Incident management (eg first aid, mechanical breakdowns)
Navigation
Mountain biking skills
Access issues (rights of way etc)
Enrichment activities on mountain bikes in the Peak District, Pennines and elsewhere

We work with Macclesfield College, Blackburn College, Stockport, Salford, Oldham and many others.

A number of local schools including Hargher Clough short stay school in Burnley where we use mountain bikes to access areas of industrial heritage for a 12 month project with their referred pupils to aid reengagement into mainstream education.

and more.....including bike maintenance training as you mentioned. Andy

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/
