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

The 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. On the one hand, the report appreciates the difficulties in understanding and responding to the challenges created and exacerbated by funding cuts which could cause income loss, damage to reputation and even closure. On the other hand, embracing new policies presents additional risks which, if not managed well, could have similar results. 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.
