Following the success of our Blog for Higher Education and our Blog for Schools, we’re launching a brand-new Blog for Further Education! We're very excited to be launching this blog that will build a stronger relationship between CLA and further education professionals across the UK.
In this blog, we will explore the different ways that you can find and use published content in the classroom, sharing best practices and top tips that will help to enhance your vocational lessons and give students a richer and more diverse learning experience. We’ll also talk about copyright and the CLA Further Education Licence, addressing any copyright fears you might have and showing you how much your Licence covers and the ways that you can make the most of it.
Each month, two blogs will be published – they'll be a mix of pieces written by us and by you. We're keen to hear from a vast array of teachers and other further education professionals who are interested in being guest writers. You can write about your own experiences with copyright and using published content, or any other issue that you feel is relevant to the practical delivery of education in the classroom. If you are interested in being a guest writer, we'd be delighted to hear from you and give a platform to your voice - please get in touch.
We’d also like to give you a brief overview of what we have to offer for FE:
CLA Licence for Further Education
Did you know that the CLA Licence for Further Education allows you to copy from thousands of titles under the vast CLA repertoire? You’re not just limited to books, but also magazines, journals and websites which is a great way for Vocational institutions to benefit from specialist and up-to-date content.
Find out more about our Licence for FE here.
Not sure if the content you want to use is covered by the FE Licence? Our Check Permissions tool makes it simple for you to find what content is covered and exactly what you can do with it.
EHESS for Further Education
We recently launched the new EHESS for Further Education service! This service means that institutions can order a Copyright Free Paid (CFP) copy or outsource scanning from the British Library (with CLA managing your invoicing). A CFP is commonly just one chapter or article that you’re interested in, and it can sit in your library stock as any other purchase would. What’s more, for licensees ordering via EHESS for FE, prices are cheaper than going to the British Library direct. Have a look at our EHESS for FE page for more information.
