FE Magazine - for post-16 mathematics and numeracy educators
FE - work-based learning - adult numeracy - offender learning

Welcome to the second edition of this bimonthly magazine for post-16 mathematics and numeracy educators. The first issue, which you can access via the archive button on the right, has been well received and we hope you will find this edition of interest too. We are pleased to report that we have received our first (almost) unsolicited article from a Subject Learning Coach in the East of England. We hope you will enjoy her lighthearted look at the FE Forum on the NCETM portal and that it will encourage you to visit the portal and participate.
If you have comments, suggestions or articles for possible inclusion in future editions, please email info@post16STEM.org.uk
