Welcome to December's edition of Vocational Education Exchange.

As we approach the end of 2016 and begin to look towards a new year, we think this would be a fantastic opportunity to take a glance over our shoulder: to reflect on, and celebrate, the year that has past. 

This month, we will reflect on the magazine’s achievements. But also, more importantly, celebrate the achievements of our readers and their students. This issue contains case studies, guidance, and top-tips to help you and your students to reflect on, improve and celebrate your work. And, as we will see, there is much to be celebrated!
