We are contracted by Skills for Health on a range of activities designed to enhance the development of clinical support workers employed by NHS Trusts across the Yorkshire and Humber region. This work fits with Health Education England’s national and regional agendas around support worker development following the Cavendish Review.
We have worked closely with the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) as it develops and extends its portfolio of professional learning. We have worked on a number of separate activities all designed to support learning and workforce development in the housing sector.
An early project undertaken by Jay Consulting was commissioned by the West Yorkshire Lifelong Learning Network, a partnership project involving universities and colleges from across the West Yorkshire region based at the University of Bradford.
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.
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.
