The Education Landscape – A Guide for Employers
The education and skills landscape can be complex to understand, not everyone is familiar with the UK’s technical education system. To overcome this, ‘A Guide for Employers’ has been developed in partnership with the British Chamber of Commerce, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), the Institute of Directors (IOD), the Careers Enterprise Company, Gatsby and the Department for Education (DFE).
This sets out lots of detailed and useful information as well as the different stages of the education system. From this you can find out more about the business benefits of different opportunities available to you as an employer. It describes options for working with educational establishments, young people and older learners, and the benefits of doing so for your business. Employers can also find out how technical education is changing to better meet sector skills needs, including apprenticeships.
