It was announced earlier today that FE Careers.co.uk, the online Further Education job board, signed a deal to create a strategic partnership with the Further Education professional body, the Institute of Assessors and Internal Verifiers. www.FEcareers.co.uk is the fastest growing online Further Education job board in the UK, while the Institute of Assessors and Internal Verifiers (IAV) is the leading professional association for Assessors and Verifiers. This collaboration will create the opportunity for IAV members to access to Further Education (FE) job prospects from colleges, training providers, specialist FE recruitment companies and awarding bodies across the UK. This partnership will also see both FE Careers.co.uk and the IAV working together to change negative perceptions of the Further Education sector.

Le’Nise Brothers, Head of Marketing of FE Careers.co.uk said: "FE Careers is very excited to be working with the IAV and its members. This logical partnership means that members of the Institute of Assessors and Internal Verifiers will have continuous access to top Further Education vacancies across the UK and clients on FE Careers.co.uk will benefit from applications from the qualified and experienced members of the IAV. I can see that our partnership will be a long and successful one."

John Capey, Chairman of the Institute of Assessors and Internal Verifiers commented:
"The Institute of Assessors and Verifiers is delighted to be in partnership with FE Careers. This is a further step forward in recognising the important role and status of those who assess the UK’s national vocational qualifications. With each step forward we raise the profile of assessors. It is vital that assessment activity is seen as a truly special and key activity. Being included in FE Careers publicity will aid in this process considerably."
