AELP produces Sector Connect as a monthly digest to all Members, keeping them informed and up to date with the latest major policy developments and news from AELP’s Sector Forums and Special Interest Groups.
It covers skills qualifications and funding information, including the Institute for Apprenticeships’ consultations
on standards and assessment, and other significant news from the employment and skills sector.
There are also advertorial opportunities for Members and partner organisations to promote products, services and events. In essence, Sector Connect allows providers to keep ahead of the game with the latest changes throughout the sector, and signposts readers to further information.
Sector Connect is published at the start of each month. If you would like to be included in the circulation of Sector Connect or use it for promotional purposes, email AELP at: [email protected]
