Tes - The education podcast The Tes podcast brings you all the latest news, reviews and opinion from the world of education

August 4, 2017  

In this week's podcast Stephen Exley talks to Sarah Simons about how colleges are being forced to ditch A levels due to funding pressures. An exclusive survey, carried out by the Association of Colleges in partnership with Tes, reveals that 60 per cent of colleges offering A levels have had to cut back on the number of subjects available to their students. Stephen and Sarah also chat about one of the great characteristics of FE – its diversity – and how it needs to be maintained in a post-Brexit world, as well as how UTCs are a great idea (in theory) but, all too often, struggle in practice, and the importance of CPD in the FE sector.
