As temperatures soared across the UK this week, and some celebrated the start of the Easter holidays, activity over on FE twitter didn't slow down.
We launched our #WhyIWorkInFE competition (with some incredible responses). Staff and students at Richmond College walked an incredible 1,016 miles, Leeds City College celebrated Hola Mohalla and Hugh Baird College showed its appreciation for key workers with a discount at its salon.
Scroll through and enjoy.

For Everyone #WhyIWorkInFE
#WhyIWorkinFE The banter! The comedy moments. The people. The opportunities. The creative buzz. The energy.— Jo Fletcher-Saxon FE and HE #AdultConversations (@JFletcherSaxon) March 30, 2021
My life was changed by returning as an adult learner - Access to HE. From that moment on I wanted to be part of the system that had changed my life and pay it forward.
FE isn't just teaching. It's a hive of activity and joy. A place to nurture, to support growth and to see ALL learners and staff flourish around you. It's the development of character and a place of many wonderful opportunities for everyone. FE is magic. #WhyIWorkInFE— Emily G #FE (@emilygeraghty) March 29, 2021

Congrats to all the students & staff who took part in the RuTC Steps Challenge! Our aim was to walk from the College to Land's End until Easter using a step app, but in total participants covered a staggering 1016 miles, further than to Barcelona!#LoveOurColleges #MadeInRichmond pic.twitter.com/fGyQVikdtf— Richmond College (@RuT_College) March 31, 2021
Happy Hola Mohalla!— Leeds City College (@leedscitycoll) March 29, 2021
Hola Mohalla is a 3 day Sikh festival where people watch and partake in mock battles and parades.
This is normally followed by poetry readings and music.#Leeds #HolaMohalla #LoveOurColleges pic.twitter.com/gI4oHeKId3
Dear media friends: you're missing a story. It's called "Further Education". It involves more than 2 million people and the economic future of the UK, as well as 'levelling up' and the state of politics in general.
