Phoenix is the AGCAS journal, produced three times a year in February, June and October.

Phoenix is predominantly for AGCAS members to showcase and share best practice in careers and employability service delivery across a wide range of areas; it is the vehicle for individual members and member services to share the plethora of initiatives, schemes, projects and collaborations that sit at the heart of the modern-day higher education careers and employability service.

Each issue is themed. Recent issues have covered big data, social mobility, student well-being, postgraduate students, placements, graduate destinations, graduate attributes and employer engagement.

Phoenix October 2018 (Issue 155) – Regional Collaboration

Phoenix Reg.

The October 2018 issue of Phoenix explores how higher education careers services are approaching regional collaboration.

Regionalisation is a strategic them of AGCAS due to its ongoing importance in the national discourse of graduate employability. AGCAS members have a strong track record of delivering regional employability initiatives. This ‘regional tour’ edition will take you on an employability journey across the UK with insights from England, Scotland and Wales and from a wide variety of institutions. The regional initiatives themselves are incredibly diverse and with various areas of focus: students and graduates, employers, local government and enhancing links between neighbouring institutions.
