The new site is centred around FE News providing a positive platform for the sector to share best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. They are merging FE Community back into FE News and the new FE Community will be the heart beat of the new FE News site. With the audience able to set up personal and corporate profiles to add comments, write their own articles, press releases, events etc.
FE News are enabling the entire sector to contribute and share best practice and innovation. As the FE News team are enabling everyone to contribute articles, they are going to tier the content into:
Exclusive articles: Feature articles from regular exclusive authors and FE Voices for one off and ad-hoc writers of Exclusive content.
Another new section will be Sector News, which will include Press Releases and non-Exclusive content.
CEO of FE News and FE Careers Gavin O’Meara explains the change in direction for FE News
‘For the past 13 years FE News has focussed on providing the latest emerging strategies and best practice across the entire FE sector. We want to encourage collaboration, joint working and thinking through a positive platform, a safe place, for the entire sector to engage and share ideas to ultimately improve the learner and employer experience.
When we introduced FE Video onto FE News and to the FE conference circuit back in 2006, this move enabled everyone in the entire sector to share the latest strategies and developments coming out of key conferences, rather than a select few who were able to attend them. FE Video brought the voice of the FE strategists to the entire sector’.
We launched FE Community back in 2008 as a communications platform for the FE Sector to share press releases, events and exciting developments in their organisations. On FE Community there have been over 5,000 articles about the positive things happening on a local and national level across the sector. We now want to take this a stage further by integrating the FE Community social network into FE News for everyone in the sector to share their good news stories, views and strategies.
The new FE News site has been developed to amplify the voice of the sector. We thought FE Voices was an apt name for this new service and section on FE News. It enables the entire sector to share best practice, innovation and strategies to improve the learner and employer experience. We want everyone in the sector to know, your FE Voice is important. We as a sector are yet again going through huge changes, working together we can improve things for the sector, for the learner and employer’.
The new FE News site, was a year in the making. There are loads of new ways for the audience to engage with and even create their own content.
FE News are transferring over 13 years of articles and data on the 19th April and launching the new site on the 20th April. Please get involved with the new site, your FE Voice and opinion matter!
