Higher Education as a tool of social mobility: Reforming the delivery of HE and measuring professional graduate output success
This paper looks at current government policy on social mobility with particular reference to higher education. It suggests that government policy over a substantial number of years has been too limited in scope, focusing narrowly on university entrance for 'non-traditional' students rather than their subsequent academic and job success.
The UK Performance Indicators (UKPIs) for higher education provide information on the nature and performance of the HE sector in the UK. A fundamental review of the UKPIs was commissioned by the UK Performance Indicators Steering Group (UKPISG) in early 2013. The overarching aim of the research was to review the rationale, purpose and policy drivers of the UKPIs, the usage and the users of the UKPIs, and whether the existing UKPIs were still fit for purpose.
This report examines the degree outcomes and employment circumstances of young UK-domiciled students starting a full-time first degree course in 2006-07 at a higher education institution.
The Higher Education Empirical Research (HEER) Database comprises summaries of the latest published research on a range of topics related to higher education. It is aimed at policymakers, academics and researchers in higher education. The database is free to register and is fully searchable by theme, publisher and date.
This HESA presentation gives samples of how DLHE data is used and why achieving the target response rate is important. The presentation, delivered in August 2010, also introduces the Good Practice Manual for DLHE, HESA's new online support centre and contains a brief description of the ongoing DLHE review.
In June 2000, Sir Martin Harris, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Manchester, was invited to carry out a review of the careers services of HE institutions in England. The purpose of the review was to help universities and colleges identify and disseminate best practice across the sector.
