UUK conference on Employability and Skills
Wed 17 May
National one-day conference discussing the policy landscape surrounding graduate employability and skills, including the Longitudinal Educational Outcomes (LEO) data, the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and the wider skills agenda. The day will be a chance to examine the impact of policy developments on your institution and to discuss your strategy with policy makers, influencers and colleagues across the sector.
In autumn 2016, the Department for Education released an experimental dataset linking together education, tax and benefits records. The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes (LEO) data tells us what proportion of graduates are employed and what their median earnings are at different points of time after leaving higher education. The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and White Paper also throw a spotlight on employability and skills, as universities will be judged on the graduate outcomes of their students and the impact they have on their local and the national economy. The ongoing UUK review of skills is building up a picture of the considerable investments universities are making to support the employability of their students. When the full LEO dataset is released next year, universities will be able to make use of this information to target their efforts to where they're most needed.
