How do different HE institutions address graduate employability?

Friday, 13 September 2019

In recent years, graduate employability has become one of the most widely-discussed outcomes of higher education (HE). At the same time, the HE sector has undergone significant changes, with an increasing number of alternative providers, the introduction of degree apprenticeships, and changes around the student loan system. This meeting will discuss how different kinds of HE institutions address graduate employability in the new HE landscape, highlighting the opportunities and challenges and the potential impact on students. This is also the first event organised by the new team of SRHE Employability Network co-conveners.
