RESPONSIVENESS OF COLLEGES TO THE NEEDS OF EMPLOYERS

Ofsted

London: 2004 (HMI 2358)

The objectives of this survey are to inform the development of government, funding council and college policies by reporting on how effectively colleges currently identify and respond to the needs of employers and to highlight instances and characteristics of best practice. In particular, inspectors have sought to ascertain how, and to what effect, colleges are:

  • identifying employers' needs;
  • reconfiguring their provision to meet those needs;
  • developing a curriculum in response to employers' requirements;
  • promoting the employment prospects and employability of their full time students;
  • planning for and managing this activity.
