What Will the Technical and Professional Education Provider of the Future Need To Be Successful?

06.06.18 | 12:22

PublicCo and CollabGroup have collaborated to conceptualise the key drivers for change in the Technical and Professional Education landscape. This second paper focuses on the organisational capabilities that TPE providers will need and how they will need to change.  To read the first publication, click here.

The technical and professional education system is undergoing a radical shift: from the impact of major policy reforms to wider changes to the context in which TPE is designed and delivered. These changes could and should result in a TPE system that is radically simplified, better joined up for learners and more responsive to employers. That transformed system would be a key component of both national and local industrial strategies and enable real progress towards a higher status for TPE in this country. The purpose of this point-of-view is to help shape a vision for the future of TPE that is shared across providers, employers, government and others.

In order to provide a framework for how TPE providers need to change, we have developed an organisational capabilities framework for the successful TPE provider of the future. This point-of-view describes that framework and concludes by suggesting some key elements of an agenda for change for Collab Group and the wider college sector.

The Future Landscape for Technical and Professional Education

06.06.18 | 12:06

PublicCo and CollabGroup have collaborated to conceptualise the key drivers for change in the Technical and Professional Education landscape.  We launched this publication detailing the findings of our research, and held  a roundtable discussion event. 

 Recent and planned policy reforms, such as the apprenticeship levy and the introduction of T levels, have the potential to add up to a transformation of the TPE system. But it is far from certain that this potential will be realised. For that to happen, central and local government, employers, education providers and other stakeholders need to work closely together to lead that transformation, with a shared vision and as part of a coherent strategy. The purpose of this point-of-view is thus to help shape a vision for the future of TPE that is shared across providers, employers, government and others. We view it as a contribution to a dialogue with our stakeholders, with whom we will be discussing it over the following weeks and months. 

This first paper discusses the future landscape for technical and professional education, analysing the impact of three key sets of reforms of the TPE system and five key sector contexts, covering T-levels to Brexit.
