SKOPE, working in partnership with the Association of Colleges, is about to start a major new research project on the future of the FE system:
Leadership in a world of change: Understandings of, and leadership strategies to deal with, emerging models of ‘localism’.
FE is currently facing a ‘perfect storm’, in terms of both reductions in public funding, and also a welter of reforms and proposals for reform emanating from stakeholders at a variety of levels. This project, being undertaken via a collaboration between the Association of Colleges (AoC) and the Centre for Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance (SKOPE) at the Department of Education, Oxford University seeks to explore one major strand within these developments – devolution and localism. The research is being funded by a grant from the Further Education Trust for Leadership (FETL).
