I’m currently involved in a joint project that is being run by ISE and the AGCAS Employer Engagement Task Group. In this project we are investigating careers-related employer engagement in higher education.
The research is building a picture of what employer engagement activity looks like in different kinds of HE institutions and evaluating the effectiveness of this activity from both HE and employer perspectives. The final report will map data from higher education against the ISE’s employer data.
We hope that this knowledge will be used to help both universities and employers develop more meaningful relationships, and to improve outcomes for students and graduates.
The first stage of the project is a survey of employer engagement teams in higher education institutions. Please can you pass this on to any teams within your organisation that meet this description.
It takes 20 minutes to fill out and the deadline is midnight on Sunday 23 February 2020. View the survey questions
The outputs of the survey will inform a report that will be launched at AGCAS’s Annual Conference in June 2020 and presented at ISE’s Annual Conference.
