It's a community of enthusiastic professionals who're interested in the world of further education and skills, whether that's in colleges, in work based learning or in adult and community education. We share opinions, discuss ideas and issues that are important to us, our students and  our places of work. 

We get together on Twitter at 9pm every Thursday to discuss a specific topic and to learn from each other. Everyone is welcomed to the chat with open arms. To get involved just remember to put #UKFEchat somewhere in your tweet.

We also have real life get togethers and hold meetings with sector leaders to discuss FE matters.

We'd love  you to get involved with our community or if you have any questions about anything we do, please do drop us a line.

Our last conference. Right laugh.

Though dancing and/or Mexican waves aren’t essential components of an education conference , we do like to make new pals and have a laugh whenever we can. Feel free to join in.
