#TraumaInformed - Prior to the pandemic, the number of black children that were impacted by adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) was staggering at sixty-one percent in the United States.

Sadly, this trauma that children go through shows up as problematic in school.
Although many schools ...
Spring has well and truly sprung, as people have been revelling in their first trip to the pub since restrictions eased recently. The vaccine rollout is steaming ahead. Meanwhile, online job vacancies are approaching pre-pandemic levels as businesses are gearing up to hire more staff. After months of COVID-induced misery, it really does seem that the worst is now behind us.
But we shouldn’t get too carried away with this optimism. ...
IT Managers are More Essential Than Ever Before
Online learning and teaching didn’t originate from the COVID-19 pandemic; it was already a legitimate industry, with many people occupying online teaching and learning roles effectively for years. However, the pandemic has highlighted the dramatic gap between those who were already capable of thriving in digital spaces and those who weren’t. More widely, the pandemic cast a harsh light on the spaces in ...
With rapid change, risk, uncertainty impacting on individuals and wider society some serious efforts are needed now and, in the future, to support the leadership of thinking.

To broaden individuals’ participation into education and lifelong learning, this requires highly motivated professionals able to adapt and thrive within changing education and employment support systems.

In recent discussions with college leaders, I have noticed a common refrain: they welcome our current return to relative normalcy, but they believe that the balance of offline-to-online education will never return to its pre-pandemic equilibrium. In other words, school leaders realise that online learning is here to stay, although they don’t know in exactly what form.
This is generally positive news, but running a hybrid school (or college, university or ...
As @Jisc launches its National Centre for Artificial Intelligence in Tertiary Education, Sue Attewell and Andy McGregor describe the benefits of #AIED for student, staff, institutions – and UK plc
Let’s seize this moment to transform teaching and learning with artificial intelligence
We’re building from a strong start. Such technologies are already used with great success in UK universities and colleges - as shown in the AI in tertiary education state-of-the-nation report, published by the education and technology not-for-profit, Jisc, last week (27 Apr).

UN Secretary General António Guterres recently paid tribute to the resilience of students, teachers and families in the face of the global pandemic that, at its peak, forced almost every school, institute and university to close its doors. Indeed, despite overwhelming disruption, we’ve seen the pandemic leading to impressive innovation, as educators and students have pivoted online with remarkable speed.
Even now, while returning to the physical classroom remains the top ...
In a previous article for FE News, my colleague Catherine Large explained how Ofqual has introduced an exceptional regulatory framework to support the awarding of the 15,000 vocational and technical qualifications (VTQs) in the current challenging circumstances.

A U-Shaped crisis
Young people have been at the epicentre of the Covid-19 crisis. The severe restrictions and lockdown closures of social sectors of the economy – such as hospitality, retail, arts and leisure, where young workers are concentrated – has led millions of our youngest workers to be put on furlough or, worse still, lose their jobs.
But the UK’s jobs crisis has actually followed a U-shape (or, to be more ...
With the Plan for Jobs and Skills for Jobs – the two big policy initiatives on skills over the last year – it looks as if the importance of vocational training is hitting home. But does the government really know why skills matter? And why are apprenticeships lagging, when they should be growing exponentially? In this article, I look at apprenticeships and data, and why we need more of it.
