New world of risk: managing risk in a connected landscape – Perspectives on risk for Further Education

The Further Education (FE) sector has faced countless challenges in recent times, and the coming years are set to be no different. Our report highlights the risks and dilemmas faced by further education institutions.

Yet, with effective preparation and a full risk management strategy in place, such challenges should not stop FE institutions from fulfilling their vital educational role.
