FE News chat with Sally Dicketts, Group Chief Executive of Activate Learning. Sally Dicketts discusses the future of the FE system, particularly Collaborative systems and how thoughtful use of technology will help both the FE system, teachers and learners.Sally hopes the FE system of the future will see more collaboration with employers and the world of work. She explains that with thoughtful use of 'Big Data' we can improve on the data we have already, then make better decisions about curriculum design and with improvements in technology this should also reduce the workload on teachers. Sally explains if we use technology more wisely, learning will be able to be more tailored and personalised to the learners and employers needs. She also hopes that if all of the above can fall into place then more money and energy can be spent on well being for staff and learners.Sally also calls for more collaboration in IT and digital systems to meet the sector needs, with a requirement for a joined up approach to digital systems to meet the sector and multiple provider needs to create a more joined up system. We could then work more collaboratively, offer more time for learners to practice and collaboratively have more staff working with employers to understand what industry needs and wants through learning. Check out the podcast from Sally to hear what she has to say.

FE News podcast with Martin Doel, Visting Professor and Associate Director Post 14 Centre of Education and Work at UCL Institute for Education. We caught up with Martin at the #AocConf 2019 after he led an interesting breakout session at the Association of Colleges conference on How to Avoid Education Administration, which was a session primarily aimed at Governs to help them better understand Education Administration. Martin shares his tips and advice in the podcast below. Martin's main tips are to triangulate information across the Principal and Finance Director and another source to have a balanced picture of the college. To enable the board to have independent sources of information within the college, consider the Financial Director's well being and enable them to have leave, and potentially to explore an audit whilst they are away to have an open look at the finances. Martin also recommends the Board to have space to have private conversations to discuss the progress or any concerns how the organisation is functioning, without the Executive present. Please check out Martin's podcast below:
