Hi All
Just retired after 35 years in FE, mostly spent with Scottish electrical apprentices. Still have a few years left in me so have joined the forum to help keep my finger on the pulse. Cheers.

Yes Welcome in to the forum - we have a staff room somewhere but it’s not frequently used so the shortcake biscuits tend to be soggy! Sniff the milk in the fridge before you use it.
Mine is white with no sugar!

Our staff room went out the window in the 90's. Divide and conquer my senior management :)

What did you drive in the 1990s ?
That’s a bit personal Dusty!
The OP drove Further education to the dizzying heights of success - all governing bodies after that have ruined it!
Still, welcome to the forum.
(I’ll bet he drive a Ford Capri 1.6 Laser in white!)

Ah, the Ford Capri Laser! Brings tears to my eye (having only one eye, obvo)
I had a 1.6 for a few years, then...a 2.8i which was great unless you might occasionally want to go round a corner in the wet...the LSD didn't help! However, it was painted in Opalescent white, so under streetlamps it changed colour as you walked by, from pink to green to pale blue to white...pimpmobile!

I didn’t read it as LSD but I was trying to think of an acronym of drive types!
Don’t do drugs they make you . . .
