The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) has been named the best in the capital for employer satisfaction two years running.
The FE Choices Employer Satisfaction Survey 2016/17 found 95.8% of the College’s business partners would recommend CONEL to another employer.
The survey undertaken by the Education and Skills Funding Agency between March and July 2017 also found the College was above the national average for England at 86.7.
The research looked at the responses across all public and private post-16 training providers, including sixth form colleges and specialist colleges.
The results follow CONEL being named as the best further education college in England for student satisfaction in the FE Choices Learner Satisfaction Survey in September.
The College was also re-accredited this year with the matrix Standard, an international quality standard that recognises an organisation’s support to individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals.
CONEL works with a wide range of employers to enhance students’ studies and prepare them for the world of work, through internships and other work experience and enrichment activities.
The College also has a highly successful apprenticeship programme and currently works with around 450 companies to train more than 1,500 apprentices a year.
This year CONEL has been proactively running workshops and providing information to employers on new funding reforms including the Apprenticeship Levy.
Among the companies CONEL works with are Siemens, North Middlesex University Hospital, NHS Trust, VGC Group, XPO Logistics, Berkeley Homes, Kelly Rail, Haringey Council, Enfield Council and Notting Hill Housing.
Sambit Sen, Assistant Director for Apprenticeships, said: “At CONEL we’ve always been proud of our commitment to deliver great training to our students and apprentices to equip them for the world of work.
“The result of the survey is a glowing endorsement from our partner employers. It is hugely satisfying to know how much they hugely appreciate the exceptional work and support the College provides to meet their employment needs.
“To be top in London once is a great, but to reach that height again for a second year is a fantastic achievement.”
