Chartered Institution for Further Education welcomes Furness College into Membership

Lord Lingfield, Chairman of the Chartered Institution for Further Education, today announced the next organisation to achieve Membership. He said:

“Furness College have passed a rigorous process which has confirmed their position as a leading performer in the sector. I look forward to working with them and our growing Membership to begin driving forward professionalism in further education. This is the next step along the path to recognising and celebrating what the sector does well, and achieving for it a status both nationally and internationally equivalent to that enjoyed by our higher education colleagues.”

Mark Nicholson, Deputy Principal Curriculum & Quality at Furness College, said this was a significant achievement for the College:

“I’m grateful to the local employers including BAE Systems and Siemens Subsea and CN Group, for their support in this application. It reflects the way we work with the people in our community to deliver the services they and our learners need. We join the three other organisations who have so far succeeded in achieving this status. This mark of quality is awarded only to high performing organisations and demonstrates how we are helping lead the way in how the further education sector will be shaped to meet the demands of the future.”
