Curriculum Planning

Analyst

Analyst is our online data tool that gives you instant access to key information on jobs and skills across industries in your region. For curriculum planning, Analyst allows you to review your courses against labour market demand in your region, so that you can quickly identify course areas where your college is either meeting, or perhaps failing to meet the needs of employers.

Course Vision

Developed in consultation with the FE sector, Course Vision is an online tool that enables you to quickly compare your college completions with regional job openings to show areas of curriculum misalignment, and which also gives you a deep dive of the skills needs of employers in your area – invaluable in terms of building a strong business case for developing new courses.

Consulting

From a Curriculum Review measuring your current courses against demand for related occupations, to a Gap Analysis, which starts with employer demand and identifies gaps where your provision is currently failing to meeting those needs, we have a number of tailor-made solutions that will support your attempts to plan a curriculum leading to better employment outcomes.

Employer Engagement

Analyst

Analyst offers you the lowdown on which industries and occupations in your region are projected to grow, and can identify the occupational demand for any sector you are interested in. This insight can be used to establish not only which employers you should be prioritising, but also their skills needs, so enabling you to take a more strategic approach to employer engagement.

Job Postings Analytics

Which skills they looking for? With this insight, you not only have a powerful means to target the employers that are most likely to engage, but also an in-depth understanding of their skills needs.

Job Feed

With live job postings from over 25,000 sites, Job Feed is the most advanced lead generation product in the UK. By allowing you to search for postings in your region, set up automated email updates, and identify occupational skills needs, Job Feed it is a great tactical tool to help your employer engagement team quickly establish which businesses they should be speaking to.

Student Engagement

Career Coach

Most students do not just want a qualification; they want a qualification that will make them more employable. By linking your courses directly to career options, and giving regional insight on those careers, Career Coach is the tool you need to show your learners and prospective learners how the education you provide can set them on the path to future success.

API

Education providers are increasingly realising the power of data as a tool to market their courses to prospective students. Our API gives you the opportunity to integrate regional Labour Market Insight on occupations throughout your website, providing you with a powerful means of marketing the link between your courses and careers to prospective learners.

Evidencing Impact

Economic Impact Study

How much impact does your institution have on the local economy? What returns do students, taxpayers and society get for investing in the education you provide? Our Economic Impact Study enables you to answer these key questions with solid evidence, giving you a powerful means to demonstrate and articulate the value you bring to a variety of stakeholders.

Apprenticeship Impact Study

Apprenticeships are currently a huge focus for FE providers, yet they are often seen by many employers and young people as inferior. By measuring the return on investment to both employers and apprentices, as well as increased workforce productivity, our Apprenticeship Impact Study enables you to evidence the real impact of your apprenticeship provision.
