Important Company Announcement
DfE conducts first survey of workforce in ITPs
The Department for Education is conducting a survey of education and training workforce in Independent Training Providers – the first of its kind.
Please encourage your Head of HR or equivalent to take phone calls from IFF Research and, afterwards, your staff to complete individual online surveys.
AELP fully endorses this survey as it helps raise the profile and contribution of ITPs. All ESFA-funded ITPs in England are in scope, giving the potential for a first ever census of ITPs! Also, all participating providers will receive a summary of findings to help compare their own organisation with the wider sector.
The survey launched for ITPs on 5th August 2019. So ITPs will now be receiving phone calls inviting HR leads to take part in the phone interview and submit data. After the survey with an HR lead, providers will be asked to distribute invitations to all education and training staff to complete individual online questionnaires.
Please plan your participation well in advance
of the end-October deadline.
Read on to find out more about the rationale for the survey, what’s involved and what is being asked.
