New Publication – Lessons From Employer Led Learning
There is more to employer engagement in education than providing work experience placements. To motivate young people and help prepare them for whatever the future brings, employers need to work with education providers to embed authentic and meaningful learning experiences in the wider curriculum.
‘Lessons from Employer Led Learning’ highlights findings from a CET-funded evaluation of Career Colleges which explores employer engagement in education. The research shows that employers can influence students’ thinking, challenge their assumptions and increase their motivation to learn. The evaluation undertaken by UCL’s Institute of Education and co-funded by The Edge Foundation.
