We are always looking to raise the voices of those working to reduce inequality in education. If you have an idea for a blog post broadly in the area of widening participation and lifelong learning, please get in touch by emailing email@example.com. Our guide to writing a blog post for FACE has everything you need to get started.
As usual, we've done our best to collate interesting sector news and key sector events for you so you can prioritise what to attend in the upcoming months.
