    How many Edugeek users work in a FE College

    Hi All,
    I have recently moved from working in a secondary school to a FE College.
    I have used edugeek when I was working in the school and found it very useful. I wanted to find out how many of edugeek users work in a FE college, so that that I can determine how relevant edugeek will be to me and others in a FE college environment.

    Thanks

    Yes its a Further Education College.

    I put in FE to distinguish this has a term for a different type of college compared to sixth form colleges as part of a school, where mostly the ethos and environment is still like a school.

    Also the term FE College helps to clear up any confusion to schools who also now have "college" attached to part of their name i.e. sports college , language college, science college etc.
    I personally do not like this idea of schools having "college" as part of their name because they are a school at the end of the day and it is a bit misleading in a trade description sort of scenario to call themselves a college.

    I use to but now back in a secondary. I do miss the much more relaxed attitudes of the staff and non teaching staff malarkey.

    I think edugeek is great, how ever it seems very much geared up with information and people who work in a school environment rather than a more of a broader education environment.
    Can any one suggest a similar site as edugeek which is more of target audience to FE college environments.

    Thanks

    I think that's just a matter of demographics - more schools than colleges = more people working in schools.

    FWIW I work in a Uni and find the site very useful.
