INTRODUCING NAVIGATE UPDATE TO OUR CUSTOMER COLLEGES THIS WEEK
Date | 19 November 2019
It's been such a pleasure introducing the recent Navigate update to our customer colleges this week.

Date | 09 November 2019
Some good research from Speakers for Schools and Education and Employers. This is a particularly powerful finding: "Students who could not recall any talks were five times more likely to believe that their background held them back in achieving their ambitions compared to those who could recall eight or more talks"

New T Level promo from the Department for Education... Let's hope this is the start of a much wider marketing campaign for all stakeholders - inc. young people, parents and employers...

T LEVEL INDUSTRY PLACEMENTS. PODCAST WITH AoC'S DAVID HUGES
Date | 26 November 2019
This is well worth a listen from David Hughes, Chief Exec at the Association of Colleges. Heartening to hear that the AoC has been lobbying the DfE to build flexibility into Industry placements.
There's so much fantastic work happening across the country to ensure T-Levels are a success, so good to know govt. is listening to best practice coming from the pilots.
