#FEtapestry is a treasure trove of resources, support and opportunities for practitioners from all parts of the FE sector. Curated by PDNorth, a professional development collective based in the north of England.

We aim to build upon and strengthen our thriving community, weaving the threads of the sector together into a rich tapestry (you can read more about #FEtapestry here!).

There are so many inspiring practitioners in our sector who are quietly doing amazing things. We want to shine a light on the great work being done in dark corners!

With thanks to CCC who enable me to keep it going, the PDN family is expansive and includes OTLA, APConnect, NATECLA and every practitioner that has written a blog, made a YouTube video or encouraged colleagues to sign up to the newsletter.

I send all my love and thanks; now, let’s get sewing!
