Attend Westminster Insight’s Graduate Employability Forum
to understand how to better prepare graduates for the world of work.
The employment prospects of graduates and the level of employment they gain has been subject to increased scrutiny in recent years, due to increasing tuition fees, the continued existence of skills gaps and wider labour market patterns.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution
has highlighted the vital need to produce a workforce equipped with the range of skills that employers need both now and in the future. Universities can play a major role in providing individuals with the skills that their local economy needs. In order to achieve this, it is crucial that partnerships are formed between universities, further education colleges, employers
and other areas of the education system.
This forum will explore how to overcome the key barriers to promoting skills growth
including the impact of Brexit and the ageing population. Delegates will consider more flexible ways of learning and innovative forms of provision
in order to meet the skills needs of employers at particular levels and will learn about how to measure graduate employability outcomes
and how to apply this data to help inform student decision-making.
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how best to prepare young people to take advantage of future opportunities, address skills needs and boost growth and productivity.
