WHEN STAFF AT Gateshead College were asked to think of ways to make savings and generate income they rose to the challenge with ideas that reduced expenditure (apart from wages) by more than £500,000. Engagement levels are high at the college, where more than half of the workforce of 509 people has been on the payroll for at least five years, including 34 who have notched up two decades' service or more. Employees, who were given the opportunity last year to develop and deliver the content for the staff conference, believe they can make a difference within the college as well as a valuable contribution to its success, returning positive scores of 77% and 81%, the latter in 16th place among mid-sized organisations. Gateshead College, which runs a wide range of courses from A-levels to degrees, ranks 16th overall for employees' positive views of the organisation. Camaraderie is strong, with colleagues going out of their way to help one another. They care a lot about each other, too (both 78%). The average salary of a lecturer is just under £30,000 and people are happy with their pay and benefits (64%) which include a final-salary pension, free sports facilities and access to free courses. www.gateshead.ac.uk

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
