Government targets for apprenticeships and the new T-Level work placements mean that colleges are going to have to increase their engagement with relevant employers. But how can this be done more effectively? Our aim is to give you the insight that can help you identify which employers you should be prioritising in your engagement strategy.
The hardest thing about employer engagement is knowing who to target. Often, colleges take a somewhat random approach, either trawling through a list of employers or scouring local jobs boards, both of which are time-consuming and unsatisfactory.
There is a better way. We are working with a number of colleges to bring a more methodical way to engaging employers. By using our local insight to identify industry skills demands, we can help you understand which local businesses you should prioritise and target in your engagement strategy.
We'd love to hear about how you are currently enaging employers and whether we can help make this process more targeted. Contact us and we will:
