Welcome to ESFA communities


Hi all

This new peer to peer discussion forum for further education and training providers will replace the dated feconnect. This new version is more accessible, scalable and easier to use.

All users will need to register on this new service to post topics/replies or subscribe for alerts.

We expect to dual run both this service and the legacy feconnect for a few weeks, so that you can post new conversations here, but also wrap up existing conversations on the old platform.

As requested by feconnect users and described in Laura’s post, we plan to leave a ‘frozen’ version of the feconnect site available so that you can continue to access the thousands of conversations you have had in recent years.

If you have any comments or queries, you can reply to this post or email

Many thanks




Steve Hewitt

Sigh....Ok, I'll settle for fourth, in. I couldn't fit any more medals on the shelf anyway! :)

Is it possible to change or add to when somebody posts something on this community so that instead of saying something like "2 months ago" it gives the actual date (and ideally time) of the post, please?

Many thanks,
