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.
We have developed a new subject coding system to replace JACS. HECoS (the Higher Education Classification of Subjects) is more flexible than JACS, and so is better able to capture the diverse and dynamic nature of modern HE provision.
Guest blogger Dr Garrick Fincham offers a planner's perspective on the challenges facing providers in the Data Futures programme.
The final round of consultation as part of our NewDLHE review of graduate outcomes data has now closed, and we have been given a broad mandate to proceed to implement our model.
We are consulting on our new model for collecting information about what higher education (HE) students do after graduating (deadline for responses: 7 April).
For the last 18 months, we have been conducting a major review of the data we collect about the outcomes of graduates. We are pleased to announce that we will be publishing our final design on Monday 6 March. Here, we provide some updates on the project.
Our new open data champions will lead the way in widening access to our datasets. They’ll work closely with you, as sector colleagues, to refine and implement agreed plans. And as these plans are rolled out, they’ll support you to make the most of our data in its new open format.
Degree Apprenticeships are set to grow substantially in the next few years. We have been working to streamline the process of submitting apprenticeship student data in order to reduce the burden on HE providers.
Just under 100 Alternative Providers submitted their AP Student return for the 2015/16 reporting year. We recently asked those submitting Alternative Providers to complete a post-collection survey so that we could hear your feedback and better understand how the process was from your perspective. This blog explores some of the responses.
Facilitating the effective transition of students into the labour market is one of the top policy priorities in higher education at the moment. To support this, we are currently spearheading a major review of the data we collect around graduate destinations – the NewDLHE review.
