The FE Week Podcast: Special educational needs provision, sustainability and the spending review

5 Nov 2021, 13:47

This week Shane is joined by David Russell, chief executive at the Education and Training Foundation, and Fiona Aldridge, head of skills insight at West Midlands combined authority – to discuss the biggest stories.

Have the government’s special educational needs reforms failed – and if so, what should be done?

Who is providing solid, top-down leadership on sustainability in the FE sector?

And the guests discuss their reflections on the spending review after time to mull it over during the half-term break.
