The Transformers Project an employer engagement resource


Norman Crowther and Paula Jones, National Education Union


This resource reports on a Union Learn Fund project, administered by the National Education Union. It provides colleges with up to date reconnaissance data from an employer and employees’ survey. The surveys cover the perception of higher order skills in the workplace and provide robust intelligence on skills utilisation in any current workplace. An employer’s report (from the academic research team) is provided analysing training needs, skills in use, training experiences and progression aims: The resource here contains a guidance document reflecting on the aims and outcomes of the project to date and a set of power point slides explaining the nature of the project’s work.
