Progress updates

This page shares progess updates for the first two years of the survey. This includes C18071 below and C17071 on our archive page. From year three (C19071), we will use the HESA weekly update to provide all operational updates on the progress of the survey. This email covers the majority of the appropriate operational data collection emails sent to HESA IDS contacts in one weekly digest. If you'd like to stay up to date on Graduate Outcomes, and other HESA collections, you can sign up to receive it every week.

In September 2019, Graduate Outcomes was awarded a 2019 Confirmit AIR (Achievement in Insight and Research) Award in the Project and Innovation category. The Confirmit AIR Awards recognise top leaders in Market Research.

Out of nine, we were the “judges’ choice” which means that we were the best of the 9 projects recognised. Over the implementation period and during delivery of the survey, we have continued to test, develop and push the Confirmit system. This has covered integration with other systems including HESA’s provider portal and SMS and email messaging systems, changing Confirmit’s contact management and telephone interviewing features to ensure that all modes are centralised and also Welsh language modifications.

This award demonstrates Confirmit’s recognition that we’re using their system to a high standard, and with creativity and innovation.
