Review of STEM employability skills

Review of STEM employability skills

NCUB looks forward to the opportunity of engaging with the review on STEM employability skills announced by BIS today.

Led by Sir William Wakeham (formerly Vice-Chancellor, University of Southampton), the review will consider whether skills for STEM graduates are able to meet the needs of a rapidly changing work environment.

The review has specific links to a separate review commissioned by Government to examine the accreditation and employability of computer science graduates, which our research on placements for computer science students has fed into.

The review terms of reference are available here.
