Developing the next generation of Further Education leaders
The Further Education and training sector is constantly evolving. As a consequence, today’s leaders need to adopt agile strategies to deliver public value, meet external pressures and their financial requirements. There is now a commercial as well as an educational dimension to managing Further Education (FE) institutions that demands a high level of business acumen and well-honed management skills to ensure they are also strategic, resilient and sustainable businesses – all within the constraints of a heavily regulated environment.
In direct response to such pressures, we have formed a partnership with the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) to launch a suite of leadership development programmes. Their aim is to help FE leaders manage the specific challenges they now face, and – most importantly – build resilience and capability throughout the sector.
