    An interesting session reminding us of the issues that we all know exist.
    I completely agree that we need to define ‘quality’ but the thing that never seems to get mentioned is defining ’employer’. We all need to be clear by what we mean when we say ’employers’ and be confident that they are (or indeed are not) speaking for the whole of their sector. The references in the FE White Paper to the need for data to inform decisions is helpful, as is the link with National strategy and data. Providers (or all types) are actually relatively easy to talk to en masse……. determining who and how to talk to ’employers’ is a very different matter!
