Futuretrack calls on members to drive next stage of nationwide study
Futuretrack, the academic research study into the relationship between higher education and employment from the University of Warwick, is calling on all its members to help in the next phase of the study.
You can find out more about the most extensive investigation of the relationship between higher education and employment ever undertaken in the UK at the Futuretrack website.
CAREERS, JOBS AND EDUCATION
Did you apply for a full-time place at university or college through UCAS in 2005/6? If so, you are a member of the FUTURETRACK cohort. If you have already participated in this important independent survey conducted by a research team at Warwick University on behalf of the Higher Education Careers Services Unit (HECSU), you’ll know that it is investigating students’ progress through higher education and their experiences in the graduate labour market.
The Stage 4 questionnaire is now available, and existing participants have been sent an email inviting them to fill it in, so if this means YOU, check all your email accounts! All eligible respondents who complete the survey have the chance of winning cash prizes: ten of £1,000 or one hundred of £100. If you haven’t received it, or you are a 2005/06 applicant who would like to join the survey now, you can register here.
Please pass on the message to all your classmates with whom you are in contact, so that we can develop as full a picture as possible about the experiences of this ‘recession generation’ to inform policy and practice in higher education.
