TES sets up FE website

5th May 2000 at 01:00
DAVID Blunkett, the Education and Employment Secretary, has warned lecturer recruitment agencies not to "drive a coach and horses" through new employment legislation for part-timers.

On the day that new laws protecting part-time and casual workers were announced, he pledged to take a tough line on any agency that steps out of line. His views are spelled out on the first national news website for further education. Launched today by The TES, as part of its rapidly expanding covrage of colleges, the site will give great scope for a wide range of news, features and analysis. New platforms are also created for readers to contribute and debate current affairs in the sector.

The website is an extension of the new monthly, College Manager, and the weekly TES FE Focus. It is available through: www.tescollegemanager.co.uk and www.tesfefocus.co.uk. The service is soon to introduce "Hot News" and "Have Your Say", a discussion forum for key topics.
