Paul Miller, VEO Co-Founder and CEO, & Mark Willis, Programme Lead, BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science and Out of Hospital Care, Senior Lecturer – Paramedic Science celebrate 3-year deal with the University of Sunderland.

Innovative video learning specialists, VEO Group, have signed a three-year licence agreement with the University of Sunderland that will see VEO’s video tagging software used across all areas of the University.

The deal – commencing in early 2019 - builds on initial work with the Health, Paramedic and Clinical Sciences department that saw student pass rates soar in practical skills courses.  The deal will see all faculties throughout the University of Sunderland utilise VEO’s video tagging platform to enhance learning and professional development for 20,000 students across all courses and programmes.   

Speaking of the agreement VEO co-founder and CEO, Paul Miller, said: “Since the company’s inception in 2015 we have been helping world-class organisations deliver transformational professional learning experiences, providing clear visibility on learning for students and lecturers alike.  We now work with over 20 top class Universities globally and we’re excited to be strengthening our relationship with a forward-thinking, local institution that matches our strong commitment to enhancing student experience and learning through innovation.

"VEO has been trialled successfully across the University’s Paramedic Science and Clinical courses, giving students timely feedback on their professional skills as they develop. I am delighted it will be available across all areas of the University. By embracing the innovation VEO brings, we’re confident that staff and students will notice tangible results.”

During the initial work with the Health, Paramedic and Clinical Sciences Faculty, students used VEO’s unique video tagging system to align evidence of their practice to key competences required for their future work.  The customisable tags can be tailored to any framework and VEO is supporting learning in diverse fields from corporate and leadership to teacher training.

Speaking about the successful transition of VEO into the healthcare faculty, Mark Willis, Programme Lead, BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science and Out of Hospital Care, Senior Lecturer – Paramedic Science, added: “It really complements the high standard of learning facilities available to Sunderland University students.  VEO has been extremely effective helping transition students from learners to expert in their chosen fields and gives us a fantastically simple way to evidence and improve competence across the full range of required skills. 

"This very much fits with our drive to support smooth student progress into their career paths, building visibility and efficiency into our delivery.  We’re looking forward to working with the VEO team to roll out this innovative technology to all our students.”

Founded in 2015 by Paul Miller and Jon Haines, VEO is an innovative video-tagging system, which seamlessly combines video and data to aid learning and development in education, healthcare and corporate training settings.

VEO is used and trusted by some of the world’s leading learning organisations, including: the National Institute of School Leadership (USA), Barcelona University and LV=.

About VEO: An innovative video-tagging system, which seamlessly combines video and data to aid learning development. By personalising the learning journey of students and trainers alike, VEO revolutionises education delivery, providing clear visibility on all aspects of professional development to build learning on shared experience and action.

The innovative VEO system can be accessed online via any device. Pre-defined tags help trainees and trainers identify key events in actual videoed practice. Students and teachers can then jump directly to these key moments to reflect and improve.

VEO allows trainees and trainers to analyse key metrics from the feedback given. Results are graphically presented and time-stamps provide quantitative data and convenient access to key moments, which build discussion, reflection and development. Any videos can be easily uploaded to the personalised VEO portal where they can be tagged, shared and reviewed with colleagues and peers, supporting continuous and independent learning.

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
