I’ve just published a new post on the ISE blog. In it I give my run down of the key facts from 2019 for student recruitment.
This is what I had to say…
The value of data is that it helps us to move beyond anecdote and feeling, which is why ISE invests in so much of it throughout the year. I’ve sifted through all of the research that we’ve published in 2019 to offer 10 surprising facts.
1. ISE members weren’t too worried about Brexit: Back in January only 30% of our members reported that Brexit would change their recruitment plans. Although 49% had some concerns that Brexit would make recruitment more difficult, these concerns were generally related to very specific skill sets. By the end of the summer still only 34% of our members reported that Brexit would change their future recruitment plans. All of this is just as well now that Brexit looks (almost) certain.
