Sharing finance and MIS. Can it really be done?
The race is on for FE colleges to save money in the shadow of reducing funding.

In this follow-up film, Dr Kathy Bland, Project Director for the Federation of Strategic Services Project (FeSSP), has her say on: strategy, staffing, TUPE, pensions and VAT. The exhaustive journeys her projects have been through mean that others exploring the sharing of services will have a much easier time.
The full case study on the FeSSP project can be found here.
