Working with employers
Natspec colleges work with an average of 10 employers.
The Natspec Employment Forum meets three times per year to share good practice. In 2017, the Employment Forum will cover Disability Confident and share ideas about closing the employment gap for people with disabilities.

Each year we conduct a survey of employers to understand their needs and measure satisfaction with the college relationship.
Key facts from the 2016 survey include:
- 97% of employers rated colleges as good or outstanding in setting up work placements;
- 96% of employers rated college staff as providing good or outstanding support to students during a placement;
- 95% of employers said that college staff were either good or outstanding in dealing with issues and solving problems.
