Mind the Gap: Engaging employers to secure the future of STEM in higher education

This report focuses on employer engagement in educational provision within the university sector. It is based on research commissioned by University Alliance on behalf of the University of Lincoln as part of a HEFCE Catalyst-funded project.

Research carried out for the report shows that progress has been slow in achieving deeper collaboration between employers and universities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in the UK.

It finds that greater incentives are needed for employers, encouraging them to look beyond research collaborations and engage with other kinds of technical and vocational provision within universities to improve the quality of STEM graduates. 

The report concludes that universities need to embed employer engagement activity at senior levels, moving beyond initial faculty-level relationships with employers and the enthusiasm of individual staff.
