#Cloud, #AI and Extended Reality specialists C-Learning (@C_learning_net) have reached a ten year milestone 

Formed in the UK back in 2011 from a research project exploring how cloud technology might transform education, C-learning soon became the first company to sell chromebooks to education in the UK followed by sales to countries across europe and wider.

Within 36 months more than 10,000 chromebooks had been delivered to educators by the C-Learning team and in another first the company became the first Google Workspace for Education Premier Partner (or just Google for Education as it was back then), capturing over 90% of the total market.

The business has always made full use of cloud technology to innovate and operate at maximum efficiency and agility with a shared purpose to support educators who are passionate about creating a smarter and more sustainable planet and what started with chromebooks quickly grew into a much larger global operation serving customers in Vietnam, Egypt, Qatar, Germany, Russia, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Switzerland and more. 

In 2019 a new alliance formed with two leading Google Partners in Sweden and Finland who along with C-Learning formed Delling Cloud (Delling relating to the Norse God of new beginnings) to serve a rapidly expanding global client base of over 3000 clients in more than 30 countries globally.

Today C-Learning is looking forward to the next 10 years of disruptive innovation and will continue to support those seeking to make the most of how cloud technology can support greater agility, efficiency and sustainability. 

C-Learning Executive Chairman, Jamie Smith, said:

“Digital disruption is business as usual now as technology will continue to transform our world in ever greater ways. At C-Learning we are constantly applying the latest impactful technology to help people to be more secure, efficient and sustainable. The mission of our company is to create a smarter and more sustainable planet and we believe passionately that we can achieve this through the intelligent use of technology.

"As I look ahead I believe that voice enabled artificial intelligence will play a greater role in our lives, and cloud technology with the internet of things is very much with us now and into the future. These are exciting times and I am both deeply grateful to, and proud of, the C-Learning team members, some of whom have been with the company from the start for their relentless commitment to our common purpose. To the thousands of customers who have supported us in the past and to those who support us into the future I want to express my gratitude for your support, collaboration and for sharing the journey. I look forward to our twenty year milestone in 2031 and wonder what milestones we might achieve, and how many people we might help on the way.”

President and Founder of C-Learning and Group Chief Executive of Delling Cloud, Ian Nairn, said:

“When I founded C-Learning with Chris Kelly back in 2011 wish a mission to bring the benefits of cloud computing to educators I could not have imagined that just ten years later we would have grown to form Delling Cloud that serves several thousand clients in countries all over the world.

"The values we started with are the same today in that we simply help people to achieve more through technology, and our mission to create a smarter and more sustainable planet is just how we do it. I look back with pride on ten years of positive impact and as I look ahead I am excited to wonder what we will achieve in the next ten years”.

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 Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 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, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

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.
