FE, including HE in FE

This work strand involves:

  • Producing a bi-monthly newsletter to support this work strand, providing staff and those interested in this area with up to date news, views and policy changes
  • Evaluating and briefing on key policy changes, and their implementation, in relation to the HE in FE, and FE landscape
  • Working with the OfS, AdvanceHE, BEIS, ESFA, LEAP and GLA on matters of relevant concern
  • Disseminating updated labour market information and interrogate the Labour Market Intelligence tool on partners’ behalf
  • Continuing to update and disseminate the London College HE in FE e-prospectus, alongside exploring with partners how to raise awareness and help publicise the unique HE in FE offering in London
  • Advising FE on the changing and emerging post 16 agenda, including Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, T levels, Access to HE, BTEC, Higher Nationals and Foundation Degree developments
  • Supporting partners to develop a strategic response to the Higher Level Skills or Technical Professional Education (TPE) growth agenda in London as well as to meet the requirements of the OfS, including access and participation plans and statements
