About the Progression through HE: University and Workplace Outcomes report
Evaluate your impact on pupil outcomes to help shape your careers advice, marketing and pupil recruitment strategies.
Where are your pupils now?
Have you ever wondered what happened to your post-16 pupils when they left your school or college? Did they go on to university to study a higher education degree and how well did they do? Were they successfully employed after graduation?
We appreciate gathering such data for every pupil year on year can be a complex, time-consuming and expensive task. We also understand how important these insights are for both your prospective and current pupils and their parents when considering longer-term education and career prospects.
Understanding the following metrics can help shape your careers advice, marketing and pupil recruitment strategies:
University Which universities did your pupils attend? What proportion of these universities were in the Russell Group?
Subject Which subjects did your pupils study at university? What proportion of these were STEM subjects?
Continuation Did your pupils continue their studies after their entry year? If not, what percentage dropped out?
Destination What did your pupils do after graduation? What proportion were either employed or in further study?
Employment outcome What proportion of your pupils went into employment following graduation? What salary did they achieve?
The Progression through HE data and analytics dashboard is an informative suite providing click-of-a-button insights explaining what happened to your post-16 pupils at university and beyond.
