Tonight, at the University of Derby Work-based Futures V conference, we saw the launch of a new book titled “Making employer and university partnerships work – accredited employer-led learning” (published with Libri). Exemplifying excellent and innovative practice from across a range of HE-employer partnerships, this book is a portrait of higher education institutions who have opted to engage with industry and by reply it captures how industry has joined and led the party. It show what can be done and what has been done. It outlines how partnerships can be built and how HEIs can develop in to agile and listening partners for industry.
(Special recommendation for chapter 17 🙂 )
