On Tuesday 5th July, TASO will be launching its new report which explores the existing evidence of what works to reduce employment and employability inequalities, and where gaps lie in the existing research. The report contains evidence from three sources:

  • Data analysis to understand the context. What are the labour market outcomes for graduates from disadvantaged backgrounds and how do they compare to those for non-disadvantaged graduates?
  • Literature review to gather evidence of what works. Which programmes does the technical and academic literature suggest are effective in improving labour market outcomes for disadvantaged graduates?
  • Sector consultation to explore insights from practice. What do practitioners and experts working in the field of graduate careers and employment report about their experiences of delivering and evaluating programmes for students from disadvantaged backgrounds?

It concludes with recommendations for higher education providers (HEPs) and researchers.

The event will take the following format:

  • Introduction to project and overview of findings
  • Panel discussion of findings
  • Q&A from in-person and online audience

Who is this event for? Stakeholders with an interest in evaluation and the delivery and impact of employment/employability interventions (particularly post-HE success teams)

Date and time: Tuesday 5th July 2022 10.30am – 12pm. Refreshments served from 10am.

Location: Evidence Quarter and Online Zoom webinar

Refreshments will be served at the event and attendees will be able to attend either in-person or online.
