Westminster Higher Education Forum event: the way forward for graduate employability
Bringing together key policymakers with stakeholders - including university leaders and careers advice staff, graduate recruiters and social mobility groups - this seminar will provide an opportunity to consider how universities and employers can work together to ensure that graduates have the abilities necessary to compete for employment in the knowledge-based economy. Delegates will assess the recommendations arising from Sir Tim Wilson's Review of Business-University Collaboration, particularly the role of work placements, gap years and internships in enhancing employability and enterprise skills. The agenda also includes discussion on the introduction of Key Information Sets and Employability Statements, and the role of university careers advice in improving graduate employment outcomes.
