Our recent report into the demand for STEM jobs and skills revealed many interesting points, but perhaps the most important is the need to look at the issue not as a national problem, but as a series of local challenges. But how can your college use the kind of data presented in the report to tackle the STEM skills gap in your area?
In this webinar, we’ll be looking at how you can rise to the challenge by first identifying a number of key STEM indicators including job growth, industry needs, salary levels and in-demand skills, and then how this can feed into your curriculum planning, employer engagement and student engagement.

The focus on graduate outcomes is turning HEIs’ attention to skills gaps in the labour market and engaging with employers to understand how to ensure graduates are ready for the world of work. However, the translation of this to meeting student demand is not automatic. Education to career pathways need to be clearly visible and made relevant to students, who are seeking a return on their investment into their Higher Education, as well as to their support network, parents and teachers

The Government’s recent Guidance on the Role and Governance of Skills Advisory Panels makes it clear that it sees the issue of skills shortages as a series of local problems that must be addressed at the local level. For instance, Skills Advisory Panels are said to be all about “bringing together local employers and skills providers to pool knowledge on skills and labour market needs, and to work together to understand and address key local challenges.” To underscore this point, £75,000 is being allocated to each panel to “analyse their local skills needs.”
But how can you do this?
In this webinar, we’ll demonstrate the kind of granular Labour Market Insight you can use to analyse the skills needs in your area, and how you can use this analysis to work with other local stakeholders to address the key challenges you are facing

We often hear that Britain faces a shortage in STEM skills, but we rarely hear what those skills shortages actually are and where they are. Yet if we are serious about solving the problem, we need to get better at understanding the specifics of the challenge as it relates to different areas.
We’ve just released a major report that uses a wealth of insight to demonstrate some of the headline figures around skills shortages, and particularly how they can be identified at the local level. You can download a free copy of the report here, and we’d also like to invite you to join us on this free webinar, where we’ll be discussing the findings, and how your organisation can use the sort of insight presented in the report to find solutions to the STEM skills shortage in your area.
