Guidance Notes and Best Practice Guides
Acas: Acas, the employment relations expert, has re-launched its website with new features for HR professionals, employers and employees. There are also regional pages to provide businesses with details of training and services on offer in their area.
As well as continuing to offer up-to-date information and independent advice on workplace relations to help employers & employees solve problems and improve overall performance, visitors can also sign up to receive a free quarterly newsletter containing information about changes to employment legislation and good practice advice on employment relations.
LLUK: Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK) has launched new guidance for work based learning providers in England to explain the reforms to the training & qualifications of teachers, tutors, trainers and instructors.
The guidance has been created as a result of demand from the sector, as work based learning providers, confused as to how they were affected by the reforms and what it means for their staff, requested further information specific to their needs and context.
The reforms are statutory for FE colleges and sixth form colleges. However, those who deliver work based learning, while not required by statute to comply with the regulations, do have a contractual obligation to comply with the requirements if they receive funding from the LSC.
