On the night, Gemma Campbell (@gemlcampbell) and Michelle Bowes (@MrsMBowes) spoke about their experience as secondary teachers moving into the more flexible arena of FE. Additionally, we consulted with the #FEparents community to find out the issues they face in our sector, and what #FEparents can do for them.
You can contribute to the survey by using the Mentimeter details below. Alternatively, if you’d like to read through the comments left by other parents in the sector, click the arrows on the bottom left (hover your mouse down the bottom and they will appear).
Moving forward, we’re keen to take action and raise awareness of specific issues e.g, syncing school and work holidays across education sectors to ensure parents holidays match those of their children, and supporting breastfeeding mums at work (above and beyond the law with an ethics of care).
We’d also like to encourage more dads to get involved because we are currently 95% female!
