My updates @ College and whatever in-between.

Save Adult Education

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Being 27 at college it’s important to keep in the loop with how funding is managed now and in the future. This post is to help spead the awareness of proposed cuts to further education for adults. This extract is taken from #LoveFe

‘We note the decision of the government to cut the English adult further education budget for 2015/16, once funding for apprenticeships is excluded, by 24%. This enormous cut in funding will decimate further education provision, leave millions of the most vulnerable adults without access to any opportunity to improve their education or retrain and put thousands of FE jobs at risk. We call upon the government not to implement these cuts and to instead invest properly in lifelong learning opportunities for all.’

You can make a difference and sign the petition here: http://fefunding.org.uk/signatures/

Thanks, Kenny.

    • A lot is being spent on the college I go to facility wise but it’s so important to get a good variety of learners at the college as well. Diversity of ages groups is an interesting thing in the classroom and young learners actually work better because they see older people getting on with their work and tend to follow suite.
