HESA Longitudinal DLHE Steering Group
Exec lead: Alison Jones
The HESA longitudinal DLHE Steering Group oversees the development and implementation of the survey to establish graduate employment information 40 months after graduation. HESPA is represented on the Steering Group by Alison Jones, University of Bradford, and has responsibility for negotiations with the survey provider on the construct of the survey instrument, data set and sampling requirements as well as liaison regarding the needs of funders and support required from HEIs.
Other groups represented include the UK National Funding Councils, Research Council, Careers Advisors, BIS and expert researchers. The survey is delivered by IFF Research who attended each meeting and take into account the views of all the stakeholders in relation to survey design and implementation. Whilst the ‘Long DLHE’ continues to be perhaps problematic for HEIs due to small sample sizes, at a sector level it provides invaluable data to demonstrate the added value of higher education and so looks set to stay.
