📢 Statement from the Board of Directors

Continuity of support and payments to the post-16 sector during the #coronavirus crisis.

Read the full statement:

Of course we would like to see #Apprenticeships complete at this challenging time. But @AwardingBodies will be watching carefully @IFAteched to ensure we don’t return to the bad old days of poor quality practice for the sake of making money @educationgovuk @GillianKeegan

Also today, @AwardingBodies urged post-16 providers to keep paying awarding organisations, 'regardless of whether such activities have taken place'

COMING SOON: I’ll be broadcasting my #SkillsWorld podcasts as an evening *LIVE* radio show, with Phone-ins for folks that work in FE. If you want to appear on the show, email #LoveFE @AwardingBodies @FENews
