Webinar: Recognising Excellence in Governance of Independent Training Providers

Webinar: Recognising Excellence in Governance of Independent Training Providers

14th September 2018, 12.30 - 13.30

This webinar will explain how independent training providers (ITPs) as deliverers of publicly funded skills programmes can benefit from adopting a new Code of Good Governance for ITPs drawn up by the Association of Employment and Learning Providers with support from FETL.

With provider sustainability an important issue during a period of unprecedented sector reform, Dr Sue Pember will discuss why good governance helps ensure that funds are well spent, are focused on government priorities and are delivering high quality teaching and learning for the benefit of employers and learners.  She will also explain how the Code can work for providers of all sizes.

On behalf of Dame Ruth Silver and Baroness Sue Garden of Frognal, you are invited to the Further Education Trust for Leadership’s 2018 Winter Symposium in Parliament.

This year’s theme is lifelong learning, and accompanying the discussion will be a networking lunch and keynote address from former Skills Minister the Rt Hon. John Hayes CBE MP.  

In addition to asking what lifelong learning should look like in a changing society and labour market, this will be a great opportunity to network with college and sector leaders, parliamentarians, employers and other sector stakeholders.
