Wicked challenges and the emergence of the super college
I am delighted that FETL is publishing this speech by Paul Little, delivered at the first International Education Symposium at his inspiring City of Glasgow College in October 2016, as the first in our new ‘Leader’s voices’ series. It is gratifying to be able to share Principal Little’s ideas and ambition more widely not only because they represent a fitting statement of self-confidence and resilience in challenging times, but also because the sector badly needs to hear what its leaders are thinking, while the wider world of FE and skills needs to learn from how its best and brightest are adapting to often quite profound change. For FETL, it has never been enough simply to mobilise the voices of the academics and advocates. We want to hear from the sector’s leaders too.
