Employer engagement continuum model

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

Graduate and Undergraduate Employability: Other resources

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. In this case, the report selected was from another region of the National HE STEM Programme: the Midlands and East Anglia Spoke.

Midlands and East Anglia Spoke of the National HE STEM Programme: Report

The report below commissioned in 2011 by the Midlands and East Anglia Spoke of the National HE STEM Programme focuses on employer engagement in relation to the student experience and curriculum development.  

It looked at employer engagement practice in the region to seek answers to the questions around what is taking place currently, what factors influence the impact of employer engagement; and how can investment and focus on engagement activities be best tailored to provide the maximum benefit where it is needed most.

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.
