At The Pacific Institute Company Meeting I listened to Jack Carney, Vice-Principal at Manchester College, who talked about the Opportunities in Times of Austerity...

Jack talked about the distance the college has travelled over the last five years to become the largest FE college in Europe. He talked about the impact the college is making across the Manchester region and the changing landscape colleges are facing. He also talked about the partnerships the college has established to reach into and work with different sectors: prisons and probation, local authorities, schools and colleges and public and private employers. It was a great session and he highlighted the journey the collerge has made from delusion, division and defensiveness through honesty, partnership and challenge to focus, solidarity and excellence.
We can all learn a great deal from the journey Manchester College has been on!
