Times Educational Supplement on Active Leadership & Innovation
TES, Friday 04 February 2011
'The New Engineering Foundation, a think-tank which supports vocational education in science and technology, has launched a new, free e-learning CPD programme for middle managers in FE. Funded by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, the course on "Active Leadership and Innovation" is intended to help colleges identify opportunities for growth even in a time of reduced public funding. NEF chief executive Sa'ad Medhat said: "It is easy at a time when everyone is looking to make cuts and drive up efficiencies to forget that in challenge, rewards can be found. It is not always about retrenching and consolidating."

In addition to FE colleges, NEF's e-Learning programme has enjoyed a high level of interest from other organisations. St Helens Chamber of Commerce and Association of Colleges were among those who have been provided with the programme upon their requests.
Given the amount of inquiries we received recently we have developed a supplementary workshop to help you gain the most out of the programme and further develop your leadership and innovation capability. If you would like NEF to run the Active Leadership and Innovation workshop in your organisation, please get in touch with Michelle Medhat: firstname.lastname@example.org
