More than 100 FE experts packed Central Westminster Hall for The Inaugural Lsect Christmas Lecture last night.
With 2011 winding down to the festive close, Nick Linford, managing director of Lsect and managing editor of FE Week, gave a rousy round-up of a number of important policy documents.
Among the topics covered during the lecture included the YPLA Funding Statement, issued this week, the 16-19 Funding Reform, which is currently out for consultation, and the 19+ Investment Statement.
The event was also a chance for people to get together and enjoy some festive treats, including mulled wine and mince pies.
