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.
