This webinar will explain how independent training providers (ITPs) as deliverers of publicly funded skills programmes can benefit from adopting a new Code of Good Governance for ITPs drawn up by the Association of Employment and Learning Providers with support from FETL.
With provider sustainability an important issue during a period of unprecedented sector reform, Dr Sue Pember and Mark Dawe will discuss why good governance helps ensure that funds are well spent, are focused on government priorities and are delivering high-quality teaching and learning for the benefit of employers and learners. They will also explain how the Code can work for providers of all sizes.

ERSA is pleased to announce that the sector’s third UK Employability Day will take place on 29 June 2018.
Last year saw over 200 centres taking part, with activities including jobs fairs and stakeholder visits, conferences, report launches and employability day tea parties. Some organisations welcomed hundreds of visitors and many signed up more jobseekers as a result. Notable visitors to the frontline included Home Secretary Amber Rudd MP, the Scottish Minister for Employability and Training, numerous MPs and councillors, Mayors and over 20 government officials.
Activities generated lots of local media coverage (including broadcast) and #Empday17 trended all day with over 600 unique tweets, video blogs from MPs and members creating their own Snapchat filters. Overall, Employability Day enabled organisations to share the sector’s fantastic work in a variety of ways.
In 2018, ERSA members and non-members across the UK will be supported to open their doors to show what employment support means at the frontline and the impact it is having in the local area. Read more

Are you ready for 25th May 2018? Do you know what the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are and how they might effect you?
The TUC’s Senior Employment Rights Officer, Hannah Reed and Emma Hawksworth, Principle Lawyer at Slater and Gordon Lawyers, are hosting a live webinar to give advice and guidance on what we, as unions need to do, to ensure we’re compliant with GDPR ahead of 25th May 2018 when the regulation comes into force.
What you need to know:
The UK will still be in the EU so the regulation will apply.
Failure to comply will result in huge fines – up to €20million or 4% (if higher) of worldwide turnover.
The regulation will be enforced by the European Data Protection Supervisor
The financial stakes are high and the repercussions of non-compliance, extend beyond the headline fine. To find out more, tune in to Hannah’s webinar on 21st March at 2:30pm.
