The Graduate Outcomes survey is the biggest UK annual social survey and captures the perspectives and current status of recent graduates.
All graduates who completed a higher education course in the UK after August 2017 will be asked to take part in the survey 15 months after they finish their studies. The survey aims to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development.

Our Graduate Employment Market Statistics (GEMS) software is a sector leading tool to help you download, compare and report DLHE data.
The GAF was created by us to frame a set of skills, unique to UoH students, which we know will be important for them to be successful as a graduate. The Framework is underpinned by the HEA Employability Framework which maps how universities can support and embed employability development via a series of 4 linked stages.
School Employability Groups (SEGs)
The aim of the SEGs is to provide a joined-up approach to employability activities, linking School activities to central careers activities via coordinated communication channels, thereby maximising staff resource and supporting students more effectively. Please contact your School Careers Adviser for more information.
Employability: Meeting Institutional Strategies Together
We run a session via Staff Development which focuses on our institutional imperatives in regards to employability and how as individual staff members we can help work towards those. If you are interested in attending this session, please book here.
Employer Engagement in the Curriculum
Industry engagement has many benefits, not least ones that contribute to the development of employability. For students, the benefits of engaging with potential recruiters throughout their time at university could include: the development of work experience opportunities; gaining an understanding of what their future career might look like; and contacts within professions.
The ways in which businesses can be incorporated into the curriculum are many and diverse, here you can find seven case studies showing different and varied ways in which this has successfully been achieved across the University:
- Employer Curriculum Engagement in Chemistry (MChem)
- Employer Curriculum Engagement in Computing and Computer Science
- Employer Curriculum Engagement in Fashion and Textiles
- Employer Curriculum Engagement in History, English Literature & Creative Writing
- Employer Curriculum Engagement in Primary Education
- Employer Curriculum Engagement in Sports, Exercise and Nutrition Sciences
- Employer Curriculum Engagement in Transport and Logistics (NOVUS Scheme)
Employability for Curriculum Design
The D4 Employability Curriculum Design workshop explains a 4 stage process to introduce employability into your curriculum in a well-planned and supported way. The resources are designed by Sue Folley, Computing and Library Services and Liz Bennett, School of Education and Professional Development.
