The Independent Commission on the College of the Future has set out a vision for the role colleges can play for people, productivity and place – and the upcoming FE White Paper represents an opportunity to take this vision forward.
A range of recent reviews suggest the trajectory that the FE White Paper is likely to set out. The post 18 review made a strong case for developing a more coherent, collaborative college network, and Dame Mary Ney’s review has made the case for a new, more nurturing approach to accountability and oversight.
This webinar is an opportunity to discuss the emerging recommendations of the Independent Commission on the College of the Future and reflections on the expect content of the FE White Paper – with a particular emphasis on the questions this raises for governing, accountability and oversight. How can we engender better quality strategic collaboration between colleges and the wider education and skills system? What could a new approach to accountability and oversight entail? And what are the opportunities this opens up for college leaders and governors to focus on systems good rather than institutional survival?
