Rt Hon Baroness Morgan of Cotes

Former Education Secretary Rt Hon Baroness Morgan of Cotes (@NickyMorgan01) has joined the board of The Careers & Enterprise Company (@CareerEnt).

Christine Hodgson, Chairman of The Careers & Enterprise Company said:

“I am delighted to welcome Nicky to The Careers & Enterprise Company board.

“Nicky has demonstrated a relentless focus on supporting the best outcomes for young people and their futures, throughout her political and professional career. 

“She brings phenomenal expertise from a Government career, that has spanned key ministerial roles in Treasury, Education, Culture and as Minister for Women and Equalities, alongside her Parliamentary role to serve the communities of Loughborough.

“Nicky also offers significant private sector experience which will be invaluable to our mission to create closer connections between the worlds of education and business. 

“Nicky joins us at a time when we are more determined than ever to support young people through the challenging environment we face as a consequence of coronavirus.

“We are very much looking forward to working with Nicky and benefitting from the considerable counsel she will bring to the organisation.”

Nicky Morgan said:

“It is a real privilege to be joining the board of The Careers & Enterprise Company.

“I announced the establishment of The Careers & Enterprise Company during my time as Secretary of State for Education and have seen the organisation develop to play a pivotal role in driving a strategic approach to careers education for young people nationally.

“At the time, we were looking for solutions to the sticky challenge of youth unemployment, and when careers education was generally recognised to be inconsistent and patchy in quality across the country.  Employers were saying young people did not have the skills they need, and young people were feeling unsupported at the prospect of entering the world of work.  We needed to build a bridge between the worlds of education and employment.

“The Careers & Enterprise Company has brought together a powerful partnership of schools, colleges, employers and representative bodies – connecting young people with the world of work - a national programme owned by and delivered in local communities. As a result, national performance on careers education is improving and our next generation is benefitting.

“Today we face a new challenge – the impact of the Covid-19 crisis. The Careers & Enterprise Company’s proximity to educators and employers mean it is uniquely positioned to provide the vital support young people will need to adapt and adjust to a changing jobs market as we work our way out of lockdown and into economic recovery.

“I look forward to working with the board and team.”

She served as an Assistant Whip in the coalition government until her appointment as Economic Secretary to the Treasury in October 2013. She served as Financial Secretary to the Treasury and Minister for Women from April until July 2014. She was MP for Loughborough from 2010 until 2019.

Baroness Morgan of Cotes served as Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Rt Hon David Willetts MP, Cabinet Minister at the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, and before that was a member of the BIS Select Committee.

Baroness Morgan of Cotes attended Surbiton High School, before going on to read law at St Hugh’s College, Oxford. She qualified as a solicitor in 1996, specialising in corporate law, and advised a range of private and public companies from 1996 to 2010.

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.

Podcasts

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.

Events

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.
