Employer Engagement for Programme Development in FET (September 2021, Online)

This online event will explore the value and benefits of employer engagement and provide insights into how employers have successfully contributed to programme development and how they continue to enhance programmes by participating on programme boards throughout the ETB sector.

Employer representatives will speak about their input into a range of ETB programme development initiatives. Colleagues from ETBs will share their experiences, discuss the impact of employer engagement and present models of good practice.

The target audience for this event is: those considering new programme development, those involved in establishing programme boards, ETB QA Officers and ETB Employer Engagement Officers.
