The Education Landscape: A Guide for Employers, comprising two key documents (the Guide and Index) have been created to provide an understanding of the range of qualifications & training routes available in England and the benefits of engaging with these for SME businesses. These resources have been created to support your day-to-day communications and can be embedded within your website and social channels. Some of the resources available are editable, giving you the option to personalise the assets into your own brand and style. We will be adding new content to help continue to support the campaign.

This is an easy to understand and independent overview of the options for engaging with the education and skills landscape, plus the benefits of doing so. The Guide is backed by leading business organisations and also provides information on how technical education is changing to better meet business needs.
The Index is a comprehensive list of the range of activities and schemes businesses may be asked to get involved with. There could be different terms being used in your local areas, but the Index contains the main categories you need to know about. The benefits of each activity and the likely time commitments are included too.
