What the students say;FE Focus

17th April 1998 at 01:00
"I liked the work and we were allowed to get on with it."

"It's good that we'll get an award."

"We need more information before we choose a course. I think the induction should be better."

"I like having a tutor to go to for help."

"I don't like finishing at 5pm but I know that lots of people work till five."

"It's better to have three days in school and two days in college."

"We're treated like adults."

"I know more about the courses and jobs that I could go for now. I know more than my guidance teacher."

"All but one of my class are going to take a full-time FE course next year."

From the report on Higher Still implementation studies.
