We want to keep improving these numbers this year to become your main hub for Further Education jobs, news and information. Here are highlights of our key stats from 2016:

  • 101 Colleges signed up for our free to advertise service
  • Over 2,200 FE teaching jobs were advertised on our site
  • 30,000 total users – and this is growing at 10,000 new users per month!
