Progression through HE: University and Workplace Outcomes

Where are your pupils now?

Have you ever wondered what happened to your post-16 pupils when they left your school or college? Did they go on to university to study a higher education degree and how well did they do? Were they successfully employed after graduation?

Progression through HE Analytical Insights

We appreciate gathering such data for every pupil, year on year, can be a complex, time consuming and expensive task. We also understand how important these insights are for both your prospective and current pupils and their parents when considering longer-term education and career prospects. 

If you would like a deeper understanding of your pupils' university and workplace outcomes, using robust data to support your business-critical challenges, contact our team today to explore your Progression through HE report.

Would understanding these metrics help shape your careers advice, marketing and pupil recruitment strategies?

  • Which universities did they attend?
  • What degree classifications did they achieve?
  • How many pupils went on to graduate?
  • Were they successfully employed 6 months after graduation?

The Progression through HE report is an informative, analytical dashboard suite providing click-of-a-button insights explaining what happened to your post-16 pupils at university and beyond. Give your marketing power a boost, try some sample pages from HESA's Progression through HE report before you buy using Tableau Public.
