University management of work-based learning

Ever since the publication of the Leitch report in December 2006, a group of pro-vice-chancellors (PVCs) from across the higher education sector have been meeting on a quarterly basis to consider the implications of the employer engagement agenda for their institutions. The Higher Education Academy facilitated this PVC Employer Engagement SIG, which had more than 80 members from a wide range of institutions. In 2009-10 members of the Group contributed chapters, from a variety of management perspectives, on how they have tackled a range of challenges over the intervening three years. These contributions have now been brought together in this publication to assist other managers in HE who may be seeking similar solutions. They are not offered as simply transferable, but as ideas that may be dipped into and adapted to fit other contexts.
