Employer engagement continuum model

Lead Institution: SW HE STEM
Collaborating with: University of Exeter, Bournemouth University

Reviewing Current Practice: Resources developed by other programmes

The Marchmont Observatory, who led the HE STEM Project Progressing from labour market intelligence to HE level provision that is well-supported by employers, have selected some key resources on the process of employer engagement from a range of other relevant funded programmes for inclusion on our website. These are resources that are likely to be of use to FE and HE practitioners who are involved in the process of employer engagement within their own institutions.

JISC: Strategic Engagement with Business and the Community

The JISC study below (2010) aims to develop an understanding of how employer engagement activity in Higher Education (HE) and Further Education (FE) is better enabled and supported by the key processes, systems and infrastructures within and across a range of institutional types. The study focused on five small scale pilot projects, analysing the dynamics of the relationships between the provider (e.g. the university), the employer, and the learner. The study sits within the wider JISC Business and Community Engagement (BCE) Programme with the aim of enhancing knowledge management particularly in relation to employer engagement.

University of Reading: Engaging Employers to Enhance Teaching and Learning

The toolkit, Engaging Employers to Enhance Teaching and Learning, was developed by the University of Reading's Centre for Career Management Skills (CCMS). It addresses the challenge of how to provide opportunities for work-related learning and employer contact in ways which integrate and complement the curriculum, engage and develop the students and benefit the employer involved.
