The skills supplied by education providers are often badly aligned with the needs of local employers. Many LEPs would love to be able to challenge providers on this, but how can this be done without solid evidence to back it up? Our aim is to give you the insight you need to enable you to work with your local education providers to shape future skills provision.
Hearing employers and employer groups complain that they aren't seeing people with the right skills coming through is frustrating, especially if you lack the strong insight to be able to demonstrate to your local education providers exactly where the misalignments and gaps are occurring.
We are working with a number of LEPs throughout the country, giving them the insight on the skills needs of employers in their regional economy, so that they can both challenge and work with local education providers to shape a curriculum that better reflects local skills needs. Get in touch with us to find out more.
