The Collection Governance project team visited Scotland to meet with the Institutional Group on Statistics and discuss the current consultation on a Code of Practice (CoP) for data collectors.
The upcoming Data Matters conference reflects the long-held spirit of collaboration in the continual search for improvement which separates the UK HE sector from most others. The conference is a further opportunity for us all to share practice and learn from one another, to establish new networks in the changing landscape, and to achieve our common goal of advancing UK higher education.
Andy Youell discusses how the Collection Governance project is deepening our understanding of data collection across the HE sector, to provide options for greater efficiency and effectiveness.
Data governance is at the heart of effective data collection and dissemination - the collection govenance project will present and agree a sector wide model of best practice.
Last year saw us launch an exciting new strategy to publish much of our data as open data. Hannah Cramer, one of our Open Data Champions, provides an update on recent progress.

This summer sees a wealth of valuable data released on the destinations of graduates. This data provides real evidence about the employability and progression of students at a time of increasing uncertainty. This blog provides an overview of what data is being released and how you can get the most from it.
