Employer ? Business? We want to hear your views.... Posted on 24/08/2017 00:00:00 The Further Education Sector is undertaking a survey to capture the current perceptions of businesses across NI in terms of the what the FE Colleges can offer business. The online survey only takes 5-10mins to complete.

The Further Education (FE) sector in Northern Ireland consists of the six regional FE Colleges.  The sector provides support to two main audiences:

  • Learners providing professional and technical courses to over 80,000 learners per year, ranging from full-time and part-time, from Entry Level through to Foundation Degree Level and above.
  • Businesses – providing upskilling and reskilling to businesses across Northern Ireland along with product development, innovation and business support.

In terms of businesses – the FE sector is launching a new campaign in the Autumn to raise awareness of the business support services available through the FE Colleges. Colleges Northern Ireland have designed a survey to understand the current level of awareness amongst businesses about the FE sector – and in particular the role it plays in supporting employers (from business support, product development, innovation and reskilling  / upskilling).  The findings from the survey will help inform a baseline from which they can benchmark progress as a  result of their new campaign.

Colleges NI would be grateful if you could take 5-10 minutes to complete this online survey – click for:

  The deadline for completing the survey is 
Friday 15 September 2017.
