With a general election, tightening funding and the ongoing apprenticeship reforms, next year looks set to be a turbulent one for the FE and skills sector, as well as the country at large.

But with the festive season of goodwill approaching, we asked familiar faces from across the sector what they’d like see under the FE Christmas tree for next year.

And whatever 2015 does bring, the team here at FE Week would like to wish everyone in the sector a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
