Covid Response and Recovery – Assessing the effects of economic disruption in your area.

Tuesday 29th September, 2.00pm

“What’s going on in our local economy?” is a question we are hearing from colleges across the country. Hardly surprising, given the level of disruption that is occurring, but can we actually get answers to this question, which can then feed into a strategic response?

The answer is yes, and in this webinar, we’ll be walking you through a new report we have developed, which will give you answers to the following crucial questions:

We will also be identifying three crucial aspects of how your college should respond going forward:

  • What are the immediate impacts on our area’s labour market?
  • How exposed are our local industries to disruption and potential unemployment?
  • Which jobs in our are most at risk and where are we starting to see growth?
  • Right course, Right track

    Tuesday 6th October, 11.00am

    This session will focus on how to use Career Coach to help students ensure they are on the right course early in the Academic Year.

    Presented by Anthony Horne, FE Sales Director, with guest speaker, Amy Woolley, Consultant specialising in Careers Advice.


    Using Skills to inform your Curriculum Planning

    Tuesday 13th October, 11.00am

    Planning a curriculum that responds to the needs of the local labour market is a challenge at the best of times. But how do you achieve this whilst going through the biggest disruption we’ve ever faced, and with no official data yet published on what is happening in your local economy?

    The most effective way is to use Job Posting Analytics (JPA) to identify the skills that employers in your area are currently looking for. In this webinar, we’ll show you how you can achieve this through our FE Analyst tool, using JPA to identify both the common and hard skills local employers are looking for, which you can then incorporate into your courses.

    Connecting Programme Specifications to Labour Market Insight

    Thursday 24 September, 1.00pm

    What is the role of labour market insight (LMI) in a Programme Spec? While a business case for a programme may look to the evidence for employer demand alongside student demand and recruitment trends, the programme spec gets into the details of what the course is all about. It is often the case that this documentation needs to demonstrate that a course meets the employability policies of the university as well as the general requirements of the OfS and best practice advised by the QAA.

    One way to meet these requirements in a way that can be measured and tracked consistently across an institution is to use skills data. This webinar will explore what that is, how it works and why it makes life easier!

    Responding Confidently to the Economic Disruption in Your Region

    Thursday 23rd July, 11am

    The scale of the disruption to local economies caused by the lockdown is unprecedented, with nearly 80% of local authorities having seen Claimant Counts more than doubling since the start of the year, as our recent analysis shows. In this alarming situation, how can local stakeholders respond with confidence?

    We have developed a new tool, which could prove essential to a successful response. Combining local Claimant Counts with employer hiring demand, the Regional Response Report answers the following key questions:

  • Which jobs are seeing the most unemployment in our area?
  • Which jobs are actually growing in demand?
  • Where are the opportunities to upskill the unemployed for in-demand work?
  • Join us for this important webinar, where we’ll discuss how data can bring answers to these questions, both in general terms and more specifically for economic developers, education providers, and employers.
