Richard Brooks, Chair of the NFEC Board, says:
On behalf of the NFEC Board of Directors I would very much like to welcome you to our new website. It will be the main communication channel of what is still a unique organisation within the further education and training sector. Under my chairmanship NFEC will remain fully dedicated to the provision of active support to Members, in respect of both strategic and developmental matters and in confronting the day-to-day operational learning delivery issues that affect engineering and the related technologies.
We look to the future with confidence, knowing that we will be working with and for a strong and representative membership. Together, we can not only ensure that your local needs are met, but we can also address any national issues that are likely to impede your delivery of high quality learning.
As a Member of NFEC, you are part of a national network that brings together individuals and organisations within the sector, in order to address issues, to promote positive change and to share good practice. We influence national policy and strategy, we offer practical support by providing news and views, sector reports, advice and representation - and we help Centres improve curriculum design, teaching practices and learning methods.
When you log on to this site you will have access, to NFECís new blogging facility. You will be able to read and discuss the views of experts in national standards, qualifications, engineering and technology subject areas, delivery methods and management issues. You will also be able to post your own comments and blog articles, where and when you believe it appropriate and helpful to Members. A digest of recent blog events will be emailed to all members every week.
Members will also continue to benefit from NFECís free regional seminars and this site will carry up-to-date news of programmes, venues, details of attendees and notes of the seminar discussions. Benefit is maximised by attending the events but full details will still be available to members even if they have not been able to participate directly in a particular event. The greater our numbers the more effective we can be, for the benefit of each and every Member. You can contribute directly to NFECís effectiveness by persuading colleagues to join Ė thus helping them to help us to help you.
Contact us at any time if there are developments or other issues in your area that you would like to discuss and get NFECís confidential support.
