Earlier this month we celebrated the range and depth of exceptional work taking place across our colleges at CDN’s inaugural College Expo. Over two days hundreds of colleagues attended 95 sessions, engaging in hands-on learning, debate and networking. Feedback from the event confirms the value of a dedicated landmark event on this scale for the college sector.
CDN’s Board and Leadership Team are delighted to announce the launch of CDN’s first Fellowship programme, which will bring an ambitious future perspective to the work of the organisation and the wider college sector. Find out more below.
I am very pleased to have invited all colleges and partners to submit entries for this year’s College Awards. We have added additional categories to what will be a bigger awards ceremony than ever. If your college deserves recognition then find out how you can get involved below, but hurry, the deadline for submissions is 2 July!
We are working closely with college colleagues and partners around the Learner Journey review, and in this issue we provide an important update on the College Improvement Project.
Don’t miss the chance to have your say on next generation college leadership training and development – the survey closes on Friday 29 June, please see below for more information.
And finally, I am sure many of you will join me in wishing Candy Munro, CDN’s Director of Leadership and Governance a very happy retirement. As well as significantly driving forward CDN’s work around governance and leadership, Candy served as acting Chief Executive of CDN 2016-17 and this year has led on the review of the Professional Standards. I am personally very grateful to Candy for all the hard work and expertise she has brought to CDN. While Candy retires at the end of this college session, I am delighted that she won’t be a stranger and will continue to provide us with guidance and support for governance in the months ahead.
Please, as ever, don’t hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss any aspect of our work:
