The FE Youth Collective applications are now open!

Creating positive and enriching experiences for students as they grow through further education is a priority. Recognising the changing world around us, and the importance young people place on differing elements of their lives, is something we need to be considering when we create and develop any new programmes.

To do this, we are searching for 10 - 12 young people within FE, from across the country, who will meet monthly through a mix of virtual and in-person events to share journeys and reflections on current experience of being a young person in the current climate. This group will be a pilot for the first year, and those involved will help us to define the core purpose and principles going forwards.

Our working values for The FE Youth Collective are:

Considerate: Of the lives of FE students and views of differing to our own.

Non-judgmental: Embracing the perspectives and ambitions of everyone as a person first.

Honesty: In how we show up, challenge others and the systems.

Fun: To find energy and life in all that we do.

Believe in Better: Quite simply, all our thoughts, words and actions are driven to ensure the student experience is the best it can be and continues to evolve.

The window to recommend a student is now open, with a closing date of September 26th 2022, please use this link:

A useful video and information pack have been put together to explaining the intended role of The FE Youth Collective in more detail.
