Futuretrack Conference: The changing relationship between HE and the graduate labour market
Watch online for free – Wednesday 7th November 2012 (10.15am-4.30pm)
They applied to university in 2006, and after three years of hard study the majority graduated into one of the worst recessions in history. So, what influenced their career journey and where are they now?
We will be exclusively broadcasting the findings of the Futuretrack studies at our conference on 7th November and invite you and your colleagues to watch the presentations (not the round table discussion groups, sorry) online and submit your questions to the panel via Twitter. Please see the programme for the day, attached.
What is Futuretrack?
Futuretrack has been tracking how students develop over a six year period; it surveyed 130,000 students at the time of UCAS application in 2006, twice during their period at university and finally two years after graduating. It is the most comprehensive research of the relationship between higher education and the graduate labour market ever undertaken with unprecedented levels of data.
Pearson/iCeGS report and schools survey
Please find below info and links about the latest report from the Pearson Think Tank and iCeGS about a project called Careers 2020.
Also find a link below to a survey Pearson is undertaking with schools in England to find out about how the statutory duty is being implemented by schools.
Please disseminate to your school networks as widely as possible so that they can get the best possible response rate. This is crucial for collecting data on what is happening in schools.
Careers 2020 is a project by the Pearson Think Tank to scope out how young people can best be supported to plan for, and progress into, their futures. The first phase of the project, conducted with the International Centre for Guidance Studies at the University of Derby, has produced a report ‘Careers 2020 - options for future careers work in English schools’ which will be launched in November.
The next phase of Careers 2020 surveys educators to explore what careers activities recently took place in schools and what they are planning to do in the future. We’re asking all those involved in school careers in England to help shape policy (and be in with a chance of winning a Kindle) by sharing their views anonymously here: http://www.pearsonpanel.co.uk/uc/admin/1958/. We encourage you to share this live survey with your networks as we hope to gather important new evidence based on a robust number of responses.
Any comments or queries about Careers 2020 should be directed to Louis Coiffait, Head of Research in the Pearson Think Tank at firstname.lastname@example.org.
