Reducing the Administrative Burden for Further Education Colleges

Written by Tokairo

The introduction ofrepparttar Government’s Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) in September 2004 meant that more young people from poorer backgrounds could afford to stay on in further education instead of being forced to find work.

Butrepparttar 138789 scheme brought with it an extra administrative burden for further education (FE) colleges. They now have to manage enrolment inrepparttar 138790 scheme, monitor attendance and notifyrepparttar 138791 Assessment and Payment Body of their decisions to pay EMA students, or not pay, where applicable.

It is estimated that about half of all 16-year-olds studying in England qualify forrepparttar 138792 EMA. To receiverepparttar 138793 allowance, students must attend at least 12 hours of supervised further education courses each week. Payments are £10, £20 or £30 each week, depending onrepparttar 138794 income ofrepparttar 138795 household. Students may also receive bonuses depending onrepparttar 138796 progress they make.

Attendance Management

Because attendance is a key factor in making payment decisions, FE college administrators need an accurate and efficient means of monitoring and recording this activity.

The Kolbrin – Ancient Warnings of Modern Threats

Marshall Masters and Janice Manning © 2005 Marshall Masters

The Kolbrin is a substantial Biblical-era wisdom text of immense value to comparative religion scholars, space threat researchers and philosophers. The earliest books of this ancient manuscript were written followingrepparttar 138698 Hebrew Exodus from Egypt. Unlikerepparttar 138699 Bible andrepparttar 138700 Koran, however, it offers a non-judgmental view of ancient times that bridges secular and non-secular thought. It also projects dire and urgent warnings from acrossrepparttar 138701 millennia to those of us living today. The message of The Kolbrin is clear. We will soon face natural disasters that will visit death and havoc upon us in an unimaginable scale.

The Kolbrin manuscript is 372,882 words long and is now available globally forrepparttar 138702 first time, from Your Own World Books in both paperback (548 Pages, 8.268” x 11.693” x 1.54”) and eBook (Adobe, Microsoft, Mobipocket, Palm) editions. These editions are designed for collaborative group study, as The Kolbrin offers a new wealth of knowledge for:


The Kolbrin offers invaluable insights throughrepparttar 138703 writing of ancient authors for those seeking a better understanding of their own faith through comparative analysis. This is because The Kolbrin reflectsrepparttar 138704 cutting-edge metaphysical and philosophical thinking of ancient times. Some feel it may have had a direct influence onrepparttar 138705 teachings of Jesus, givenrepparttar 138706 Bible’s andrepparttar 138707 Koran’s accounts of his hiding in Egypt. This is because many ofrepparttar 138708 original books of The Kolbrin were authored in Egypt, so this would have placed Jesus in close proximity to them.


For those concerned about space threats, The Kolbrin offers an accurate description of a massive object called “The Destroyer” which orbits our Sun and is due to return with catastrophic results inrepparttar 138709 near future. It also correlates to Nostradamus’s “Bearded Star,” Mother Shipton’s “Fiery Dragon” andrepparttar 138710 “Red Comet” warning ofrepparttar 138711 Mayan Calendar Prophecies.


The Kolbrin differs fromrepparttar 138712 Holy Bible and Koran in that it offers a humanist paradigm consistent with many “New Age” beliefs. The personal accounts in The Kolbrin offers invaluable insights intorepparttar 138713 genesis ofrepparttar 138714 early religious and metaphysical thought followingrepparttar 138715 Hebrew Exodus from Egypt, and which finally took root duringrepparttar 138716 beginning ofrepparttar 138717 European Renaissance inrepparttar 138718 14th century. In many respects,repparttar 138719 ancient writings of The Kolbrin offer a time machine journey back torepparttar 138720 very genesis ofrepparttar 138721 humanist movement.
