NewDLHE and the future of graduate outcomes: AGCAS consultation response request
HESA are currently running a public consultation on the NewDLHE as part of a fundamental review of graduate outcomes data. The proposed NewDLHE will combine a universal census survey of graduates with linked data from other sources (which will include salary information from HMRC). AGCAS members are invited to contribute to an official AGCAS response to the consultation.
The NewDLHE review proposes a model that will combine a universal census survey of graduates with linked data from other sources (such as salary information from HMRC). This survey will take place 15 months after the graduate completes their studies.
Within the NewDLHE HESA have developed a model of open centralisation, which means that all data will be administered centrally, aiming to capture the most rigorous and reliable data via a consistent approach. HESA also anticipates that this move will not only lead to better greater data capture but also to greater efficiency and save £1.5m across the HE sector.
The AGCAS response
It is of the upmost importance that AGCAS is able to comment on matters of such significance to our sector, and whilst members are likely to be involved in producing separate institutional responses it is vital that AGCAS is seen as a central contributor to these debates. All comments received via this route will be used to inform the AGCAS response. All responses will be treated in the strictest of confidence and only used to construct a representative AGCAS perspective.
Therefore we request that you please send your consultation responses to Samantha Woodman by Friday 31 March.
The consultation questions are available to download below along with some further background infomation from HESA on the consultation.
