Integration of Skills Development into Online Learning Content

Tuesday 14th November, 1.00pm

Improving the job and career prospects of those entering education and training is becoming far less about the qualifications being offered and more about the skills being gained. Achieving this therefore depends on ensuring that the skills being taught are the ones employers are looking for, and then successfully integrating these into course content.

In this webinar, Emsi’s Director of Further Education, John Gray, and Stuart Allen, Executive Director Curriculum and Quality at The Skills Network (TSN), will come together to look at these issues, with John showing how Emsi data can be used to identify current skills demand, and Stuart talking about how TSN have integrated skills development into their online learning content through Stop and Think Activities, Extend Your Learning Tasks, VLOGS, and Reflective Journals.

Capturing Skills Data from Programme Documentation

Thursday 15 October, 12.15pm

The employment outcomes for university programmes have been rising in importance for years. They’re important to students; they’re important to the OfS; they’re important to the Treasury; and they’re important to institutions’ reputations.

Labour market insight and skills data already inform decisions about things like programmes, pedagogy and marketing. Typically, the link between programmes and labour market data is made at the course title level. We’ve developed a tool that allows an institution to automatically capture the skills data from the curriculum at module level directly in a language that plugs into labour market data.

Whether you’re tracking the labour market to ensure your programmes reflect employer demand, or if you’re auditing your institutions’ skills provision, extracting the skills data from those courses needs to be easy and exportable to become a realistic exercise. Join us for this webinar to see how it works with our new Emsi Skill Sync tool.

    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.
