Foreword by Matthew Hancock MP, Minister for Skills


Apprenticeships are at the heart of our drive to equip people with the skills that employers need. They are rightly popular both with businesses and with young people.


But when I speak to employers, they consistently tell me that they are concerned that young people often lack the right skills and attitudes when they apply for an Apprenticeship or other jobs.

This is perhaps not surprising – too many young people have little or no experience of seeking, or being in, work. At a time when young people are competing for jobs against adults with more skills and experience, we risk younger people being passed over for these opportunities. That is not right.

Thirty-one colleges from across the UK have come together with the aim of entering the vocational education marketplace in India over the coming years.

Nick Linford, Editor of FE Week, has prepared a special FE supplement from his visit to India with the AoC India delegation.

"On first hearing that 30 FE colleges were to have a permanent presence in India I was intrigued. I asked myself, is there not enough of a challenge educating learners and supporting employers during tough economic conditions in the UK? Why use precious resources chasing contracts in unfamiliar countries, where many have tried and failed before?" are his opening words.

This is an excellent supplement and makes for interesting reading. To download the free supplement visit the FE week web site

I found this report from the Gazelle Group really interesting discussing entrepreneurial learning. The debate around post-compulsory education in the UK has been dominated by the relationships between education, employment and competitiveness in the global knowledge economy. The golden thread running through the debate is the importance attached to advancing vocational and technical skills as tangible outputs of the education system and the keys to industrial competitiveness. But what if we’ve got this wrong? What if the real drivers of our collective and individual success in work have moved beyond technical skills? And what if our further education system is failing to adapt to people’s experiences of work and needs for learning in the knowledge economy?

are drawing on those strengths to support young people in their communities.
It also illustrates another key characteristic of the FE sector: its flexibility,

With skill shortages a major obstacle to business expansion, firms are being encouraged to find new ways of working with the education sector.
