Local Skills Improvement Plans and the proposed new Skills Measure are set to put Further Education providers under more pressure to ensure courses are aligned to their local economy, and to be able to present evidence that their provision is meeting the jobs and skills needs of businesses in their area.
We have identified three basic steps that will help any provider achieve this, which we call the ABC of Curriculum Alignment:
Assess Your Local Labour Market
Benchmark Your Curriculum
Connect Your Courses to Demand.
To find out more about how this simple three-step process can help your institution, check out our new video:
We are also hosting two free webinars where we’ll look at The ABC of Curriculum Alignment in more detail. In the first, on 30th September, we’ll take you through the basics of the process, including why it is so important and how it can give you the evidence-based approach you need to be able to demonstrate how well your provision is meeting local jobs and skills needs. In the second, on 4th October, we’ll give you a practical walk through how our FE Analyst platform can help you achieve this. You can sign up to these webinars by clicking the buttons below:
