FE chatter: Toyoko 2021, WorldSkills and holidays

In the week when Dominic Cummings spiced up our Twitter feeds with his WhatsApp history, and the UK enjoyed the hottest day of the year so far (followed, typically, by days of rain), the further education sector was back in full swing on social media.

Dance students from Esher Sixth Form College made the case for Btecs with a little help from famous choreographer Bob Fosse; Grimsby Institute vice-principal Emma Forrest-Leigh shared what Pride means to her; and Craven College celebrated its staff award winners at its new bistro.

Meanwhile, in the House of Lords, speakers raised their concerns over the new Skills and Post-16 Education Bill, and Tes' FE teacher of the year, Anthony Gascoigne, got his hands on his Tes award.
