Bring back the polytechnics ....

Ahhhh but they are; with the University Technology Colleges ...

In 20 years, people have forgotten the land rush of polytechnics wanting to be renamed as universities. The snobbery is still there, in everything is a name, but when there is funding, we do like to align ourselves to whatever current/new idea is out there.

I have listened to three different further/higher education consortium proudly boast about their UTC, I am all for the vocational development and think that this concept is a fantastic revamp of an old idea. It is not the first, as some of you will recall COVE's and foundation degrees, lets hope it does not lose the plot or political will as the others have done.
