With OLASS 5 widely expected to kick off in Q1 of 2018, Offender Learning Providers will shortly be looking to write their bids. The procurement process is expected to broadly follow the Government white paper, Prison Safety and Reform, which amongst other things called for prison education to become better aligned with the needs of local employers. Successful bids will therefore need to demonstrate how the provider can respond to regional demand. In this webinar, Rob Mills Specialist Education & Justice Advisor who led the LMI project as part of the Coates Review into Prison Education, and Andy Durman, Managing Director of Emsi UK, will take you through what to expect in the procurement process, and how local Labour Market Insight can be used to position your organisation during the bidding process and on into successful delivery.
With devolution, Brexit and the end of central government funding making the challenge of fostering local growth both more critical, the ability to articulate and evidence why businesses should locate to your region is becoming more important than ever. One of the keys to doing this successfully is to have a sound understanding of the current state of your local economy. This includes being able to identify which sectors make your region unique, which industries represent the best opportunities for development, and which sectors are potentially under threat. In this webinar we will show you how our “industry clusters” concept can help you better understand these dynamics within your local economy, giving you the insight to develop a strategy for retaining, growing and attracting business in your region.
