Case Study 5: University of Bradford

The aim was to scope different examples of collaboration between employers and businesses to support progression into advanced level skills that could inform the development of the proposed CEAII. The ambition for the CEAII is wide ranging not only to address progression issues from schools through the developing Industrial Centres of Excellence in priority employment sectors, but also to consider how the development could open up opportunities for improved collaborations between local business and the Higher Education providers locally and improve business access to research development and support services, as well as potential workforce development provision.

Case Study 2: National HE STEM

We were engaged by the National HE STEM programme for two projects related to the employability and employer engagement developments in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths based across England and Wales, and funded through the programme. These projects involved careful management, communicating with over 50 projects leads and officers and synthesising their project outcomes.

Case Study 1: Asset Skills Higher Level Skills projects

Asset Skills was the sector skills council for the planning, housing, facilities and asset management and property sectors. We worked with them to deliver two projects designed to bring together university academics and their students with employers in the sectors: The World of Work project and the Student Ambassador Programme.  Both projects formed part of an Asset Skills programme funded through the UKCES Employer Investment Fund 2 (EIF2). The programme was designed to enhance employer engagement with the higher education sector to improve mutual understanding of the opportunities for higher level skills employment and increase understanding of graduate skills and HE learning provision.
