Pre-employment provision - International Centre for Guidance Studies (iCeGS): University of Derby, A cluster approach to employer engagement


This set of resources relates to one of nine projects focusing on developing Apprenticeships, employer responsiveness and pre-employment provision. The projects designed, piloted and delivered activity in one or more of the above strands, including workshops, study or exchange visits, coaching and mentoring, consultancy and the development of self assessment tools. ICeGS designed and piloted a programme based on the principles of action learning to support work based learning managers and curriculum leaders to develop a cluster approach to enhance employer engagement. The action learning set (ALS) provided a vehicle for exploring the establishment of strategic clusters between providers and employers. The strategic clusters enable providers and employers to engage in a systematic way, providing an alternative for organisations which often pursue engagement with employers in a random fashion. A range of materials have been produced as part of this project, including a three day employer engagement programme with supporting resources.
