The new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework and accompanying inspection handbook calls on providers to demonstrate Intent and Impact. Curriculum should be ambitious and appropriately relevant to local and regional employment and training priorities, and providers will be asked to demonstrate the positive impact their institution is having on learners, employers, and the local economy.
To achieve these things, access to good local LMI is critical to success. Join us on this free webinar, where we’ll demonstrate how local labour market data can help you develop a curriculum that is better aligned to the needs of employers, and geared to producing better employment outcomes for your learners.

The labour market is currently very tight, with record employment, unemployment at its lowest since 1975, and job creation outstripping the number of available workers. This means that employers face more competition to attract workers, whilst economic developers are having to work smarter to develop, attract and retain talent in their area.
Our major new report – British Talent Attraction Index – looks at how well different areas of the country are attracting talent into their area, and in this webinar we looked at some of the highlights of the report, plus a number of other interesting takeaways that didn’t make it into the final report. We also looked at what this means for your area, and how can local stakeholders gather around the common language of data to ensure talent supply is meeting talent demand.
