Broadening horizons and opportunities Edition 554, 19 May

There was much discussion last week about the measures announced in the Budget – some good and Claire Fieldsome not so good for private providers and their students. I sent email advice on Tuesday evening to all members and had a further opportunity to discuss the changes with members during Friday’s In Conversation with the CEO webinar.
