Vacancies on the AGCAS Data Insights (Graduate Data) Group

10 June 2019

We are inviting applications from members to join the AGCAS Data Insights (Graduate Data) Group. This is one of three groups operating in support of our Data Insights strategic theme activity

Due to an expansion of the group, there are four vacancies. 

Purpose of the group

The principal aims of the Data Insights (Graduate Data) Group are to:

  • collate and feedback issues relating to the Graduate Outcomes survey to AGCAS members and HESA;
  • maintain awareness of all graduate data sets (including LEO) and support the development of members' interpretation of the use of these data sets and AGCAS's strategic responses to the use of these data sets;
  • support and share best practice in the processing of graduate data.

The group also collaborates and shares knowledge with other groups within the broader Data Insights strategic area.

Expected commitment and terms of reference 

The group meets twice a year, usually in May and November, with regular correspondence in between meetings to deliver group outputs.
