    TELL meetings
    Unfortunately the TELL meeting at Lewisham Southwark College (Southwark College centre) scheduled for Thursday 2nd March 2017 has had to be postponed. We hope to fit it into the schedule for 2017/18. Apologies to those of you who have already booked or were planning to come on the day.
    Our other two meeting for the 2016/17 year are still on, and they are:
    Tuesday 9th May 2017 – Newcastle - Northumbria University Thursday 15th June 2017 – University of Westminster
    Both hosts, Liz Atkins and Rebecca Eliahoo have already invited some excellent contributors, but do get in touch if you or colleague/s wish to use the meeting to showcase research, discuss research or publication ideas or gather data for your research.
    All are most welcome, and the meetings always succeed best when we have contributions from members or practitioners who wish to showcase something to do with their own research in FE and skills.
    Anyone with an interest in research which is relevant to the sector is welcome.
    Just email me at j.crawley@bathspa.ac.uk with either a booking, or an indication of your contribution and which meeting you would wish to make it at.

    Sheffield TELL network meeting - thanks to Sheffield Hallam University's Institute of Education (in particular Dave Darwent) for hosting
    In our local / national news section we discussed the effects of the growth of trainees who were undertaking a PCET ITE programme but intending to teach in a school, and the need to recruit and train many more teachers of Maths, English and IT. Providing the best quality support during their training, and at the start of their career, and working more closely with college management to establish and maintain that support was felt to be essential. It was also agreed that developing that support was not getting any easier in our current environment. It was felt this could potentially be the theme for a future TELL research project.

    Bronwen Maxwell (Sheffield Hallam University) ‘Re-examining the ‘architecture’ for teacher mentoring in the further education and skills sector in England’
    This presentation drew on the findings of a national mixed methods study of mentoring in the FE and Skills sector to explore empirically whether the principles of an architecture for mentoring proposed by Cunningham (2007) support successful mentoring and if so, whether they are sufficient to ensure high quality mentoring. It also explored the extent to which a supportive organisational architecture for mentoring is currently in place within the sector, and any other barriers to successful mentoring.

    New publication
    Hope, Utopia and Creativity in Higher Education - Pedagogical Tactics for Alternative Futures by Craig Hammond
    Reappraising ideas associated with Ernst Bloch, Roland Barthes and Gaston Bachelard within the context of a utopian pedagogy, Hope, Utopia and Creativity in Higher Education reframes the transformative, creative and collaborative potential of education offering new concepts, tactics and pedagogical possibilities. Craig A. Hammond explores ways of analysing and democratising not only pedagogical conception, knowledge and delivery, but also the learning experience, and processes of negotiation and peer-assessment. Hammond shows how the incorporation of already existent learner hopes, daydreams, and creative possibilities can open up new opportunities for thinking about popular culture and memory, learning and knowledge, and collaborative communities of support. Drawing together theoretical and cultural material in a teaching and learning environment of empowerment, Hammond illustrates that formative articulations of alternative, utopian futures, across sociological, humanities, and education studies subjects and curricula, becomes possible. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/hope-utopia-and-creativity-in-higher-education-9781474261654/
    Further Education Transforming lives and communities project
    This research aims to understand and provide evidence of how the further education (FE) sector is vital in transforming lives and communities in 21st century Britain. To provide a frame of reference, which is underpinned and driven by excellence in the sector, the study will provide learners and teachers with the opportunity to tell their stories, linking the distinctness of FE to the impact it has on individuals, society and the economy, and strongly drawing out the role of the teacher in making a difference to quality teaching and learning.
