Briefing: Graduates, skills and jobs

Graduates, skills and jobs front coverThis briefing, building on our report 'Supply and demand for higher-level skills', considers the current and future demand for graduates, the numbers of graduates in non-graduate jobs and the role of skills mismatches, and the need to review the changing landscape of vocational education and patterns of provision. 

The briefing forms part of the UUK programme of work on higher-level skills and contributed to a roundtable discussion with MPs, universities and other stakeholders held in parliament on 9 December 2015.
