Guernsey College of FE Weekly Newsletter Issue 45

Welcome to ENGAGE

If you have any articles for next academic year's issue please email this to LauraL@gcfe.net by end of August 2015.

A very warm welcome back to College!

A very warm welcome back to you all. I hope that you had a restful and enjoyable summer and if you did get away and took some time out, I hope that you found this fulfilling and refreshing.

My thanks to you for the work you have done during the enrolment period helping our students join the College. I look forward to welcome them to the College on the 14th September.

There has been a great deal of planning and work carried out over the summer. Many of you have been directly involved and instrumental in shaping these plans or implementing the desired outcomes. I hope to share with you how these may impact the way we work at the College moving forward at the all staff training day on Monday, starting at 9.00 at the PRCPA.

This year’s first inset day is set out to give everyone at the College an overview of our plans, ways of working, expectations and how we aim to bring our vision closer to reality over this new academic year.

I hope you are able to join us during the day and that you find the day informative and helpful. Your active participation, input and views are of utmost value and as always there will be a great chance for us to engage in dialogue and debate about how best to serve our community and our learners. You can find a copy of the Training day programme here https://www.scribd.com/doc/278372306/Schedule-for-Staff-Development-Day

In this year’s engage you will be receiving a faculty update each week. This will start from next week. In the meanwhile I would like to welcome all new staff who have joined the College and or also are operating in a new position at the College. We are looking to put a Who’s Who section on My CFE in the near future which I am sure you will find helpful. In order to help us have this publication produced you are all asked to complete this short form with information about yourself that we can then edit and use to produce the College’s Who’ Who document. http://form.jotformeu.com/form/52463061053345

A word from Louise...

We have been busy planning our key processes and review the way we do things at the College this week. We remain firmly focused on improving the quality of our processes and the outcomes of them. I would like to thank Nicola Le Feuvre and team for their sterling work over the summer that had resulted in a new way of enrolment this year. This has resulted in us having a much more successful enrolment events on both full time and part time and apprenticeship sessions and we will be looking forward to improving what we learnt for next year.

I look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Thank you.

Relocation, Relocation, Relocation!

The College Leadership Team (CLT) have looked at the ways in which we will need to work and we have decided that none of CLT will have dedicated offices. The CLT will all be working across the whole college, sharing a base room and hot-desking as we move around the college. All of our old offices will either be reallocated to others, available for hot-desking or bookable by any member of staff for meetings.

A lot of work has been done on all fronts. A big thank you to all colleagues who have been involved with all the hard work. There is still work to be done and thank you to each and every one of you for bearing with the operations team as they finish their job list.
