Employment of leavers (table E1)

This table is based on a different population from the other UK performance indicator tables and has benchmarks that take into account a wider range of factors than those for the other indicators. The employment indicator is based on the Destinations of Leavers in Higher Education (DLHE) survey and expresses the number of UK domiciled graduates who say they are working or studying (or both) as a percentage of all those who are working or studying or seeking work. All other categories are excluded from this indicator.

Due to changes on the DLHE questionnaire in 2011/12 and hence changes to the derivation of the activity categories, the employment indicator for 2011/12 onwards is not strictly comparable with the indicator prior to 2011/12. Please refer to the definitions document for further details.

From 2011/12, the DLHE population was extended to include leavers with additional qualifications. The only undergraduate qualifications excluded from the DLHE population from 2011/12 are: Intercalated degrees; Awards for visiting students; Post-registration health and social care awards; Professional qualifications for serving schoolteachers and Awards of credit. See the DLHE collection 2011/12 for more details.

The main tables provide a breakdown by Higher Education institution and include the response rates of the DLHE survey. Indicators for institutions with relatively small populations or relatively low response rates should be treated with caution. The supplementary tables (SE1 - SE5) provide some background information and context figures for the sector used in the derivation of the benchmarks. All downloadable data files are provided in Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet format.
