In the week when we were surprised to see snow in April, and many across England enjoyed trips to the pub and the hairdressers for the first time in a while, there was a lot going on in the world of FE.
Thursday's debate on adult education at Westminster Hall got everyone talking and colleges took the opportunity to mark the start of Ramadan and celebrate World Art Day.
Former WorldSkills competitors appeared on our screens, and students did their part to encourage their peers to vote in the upcoming elections.
Scroll through and enjoy our selection of the top 10 tweets from the FE sector this week.

Ramadan is the holiest month of the year in Islam, in which the Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad. In this month, the gates to heaven are believed to be open and the gates to hell closed. Muslims are instructed to fast in the second and longest chapter of the Quran. pic.twitter.com/I8usxmb5BG— London SE Colleges (@LSEColleges) April 13, 2021
