12 September 2011 – SCOLA is ready to face the challenges ahead!
The big picture across the education sector as you have probably seen and read is at best uncertain and turbulent. The government’s cuts to the FE sector, and removal of various access schemes such as Aim Higher, or helping-hand programmes as well as the Review of ACL continue to put a huge squeeze on colleges and as a result thousands of the most vulnerable will no longer qualify for help to study. Some curriculum areas have lost their funding, some provision has been cut and other public sector cuts such as libraries are putting a substantial strain on education. At SCOLA we have been working hard to remain focused on what we value most; to be a community college providing excellent quality provision to our learners.
