Westminster Employment Forum

The way forward for improving graduate employability

October 2012


Bringing together key policymakers with stakeholders - including university leaders and careers advice staff, graduate recruiters and social mobility groups - this seminar provided an opportunity to consider how universities and employers could work together to ensure that graduates have the abilities necessary to compete for employment in the knowledge-based economy.

Delegates assessed the recommendations arising from Sir Tim Wilson's Review of Business-University Collaboration, particularly the role of work placements, gap years and internships in enhancing employability and enterprise skills. The agenda also included discussion on the introduction of Key Information Sets and Employability Statements, and the role of university careers advice in improving graduate employment outcomes.

Shortly after every Westminster Employment Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
