Welcome from Martin Reid
I hope that this issue of inTuition finds you refreshed after recharging your batteries over the summer.
For our further education members the coming year brings a number of changes as work on the reform of technical education, including the reform of apprenticeships, gathers pace.
The second annual Technical Teaching Supplement, included free with this issue of your magazine, is designed to help set out and make sense of those changes, as well as offer a glimpse of some of the great work being done already by practitioners, providers and employers.
The start of a new term can also lead to practitioners thinking about their career options and I hope that the extended Career Focus section in this issue (pages 26-31) is useful in helping you to scope out some of the options available through SET and the ETF.
We will pick up on many of these issues during our inaugural SET conference in Birmingham on 7 November (see page 4 for details), and I look forward to seeing many of you there.
Finally, on a lighter note, I would urge members to read the Writer’s Blog column on page 37, and let us know about the book that helped shape your professional practice. This should make for an interesting and fun read in our December issue.
