20 Tavistock Square
National one-day conference discussing the policy landscape surrounding graduate employability and skills, 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.
Our understanding of employability and skills is pivotal to successful higher education delivery. With the LEO dataset released in June 2017, universities have made use of this information to target their efforts to where they’re most needed.
The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and the Higher Education and Research Act 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.
An ongoing UUK review of skills is building up a picture of the considerable investments universities are making to support the employability of their students and in April 2018 a future skills policy will be published.
All this in the context of the governments industrial strategy means employability and skills is at the forefront of the agenda.
