With the area reviews now well underway, one of the recurring themes we are coming across is this: These reviews require us to show that we are “responding to local employer needs and economic priorities”, but how can we achieve that with limited resources and tight timescales?
We believe that although both resources and timescales may be tight, showing that you are “responding to local employer needs and economic priorities” is actually very achievable. In our new 8-page report, Preparing for Your Area Review, we take you through a number of simple and effective ways you can demonstrate to the steering group that you are fulfilling the criteria that the Government has set. Specifically, we take you through how you can:
- Articulate the economic value and contribution to local productivity your college is already making
- Show that you really understand the needs of your local labour market
- Evidence that your curriculum is aligned or is in the process of being aligned to local demand
We believe that preparation will be crucial to a successful review, and we are here to help you succeed in your preparation.
