I ended the day at the University of Leeds...

I was there to talk to students and their parents and carers about 14 - 19 Diplomas with Gary Williamson Chief Executive of Leeds, York and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, Professor Vivien Jones, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching at the University of Leeds and my colleague Joe Coluccio, Assistant Headteacher at Corpus Christi Catholic College.

About 120 attended the session which included 14 - 19 Diploma Taster Session in each of the Diploma Lines available in Leeds this September. It's great to know that 33 of our secondary schools are now involved with all the Leeds FE Colleges in this brilliant programme which has massive support from the business sector here in Leeds.

Thanks to Sally Spofforth, Gary Milner and colleagues who worked so hard to make this event such a success.
