The right Foster after all?

9th September 2005 at 01:00
In his farewell column, (Backchat, August 26) Graham Jones says that Sir Norman Foster is reviewing further education. It is of course Sir Andrew Foster who is reviewing the sector, not the leading British architect.

Mind you, a review of further education by Sir Norman as well might not be a bad idea.

We could certainly expect some well-designed colleges and campuses to come out of it. After all, that's one of our ambitions for FE at the Learning and Skills Council - to see world-class teaching in world-class buildings.
