Chill winds blow on Further Education

The impact of cuts in Scotland's FE sector is highlighted by Dave Watson in the latest edition of Scottish Policy Now.

Dave argues that budget cuts and centralisation are the wrong approach for Scotland’s Further Education sector. A strong economy needs a skilled workforce and colleges are just as important as universities in delivering a fairer, more prosperous Scotland.

He also points to the recommendations of the Christie Commission that the Scottish Government claims to be implementing. That report called for bottom up design of public services - not centralisation.
