Further Education

The Scottish Executive published an annual report for the FE sector last week.
"Further Education in Scotland 2004" presents a summary of the situation in Scottish colleges.

As someone who used to work in FE, I'm impressed by how far the sector has come (assisted by changes to funding mechanisms, management, etc) but also know from friends how some concerns linger. Staffing pay and gradings; balance of permanent and part-time lecturers; comparison with school teachers roles and terms; professional development, etc.
