Are colleges open for business?

I have spent much of today trying to speak to colleges about them providing construction training for a client. While some FE colleges are enthusiastic and accessible, others offer unreturned emails, labyrinthine websites and ringing-out phones. I am lucky to escape the loop of one college’s telephone system.

It will be a challenge when they are assessed on their responsiveness to customers under the LSC’s Framework for Excellence.

Maybe choice and competition will sharpen up their act.
