Education is Not for Sale


Launch of the Network for Employability, Enterprise and Work-based Learning

Employer Engagement: what research do we need?

9th May 2013 11.30 – 15.45

SRHE 73 Collier Street, LondonN1 9BE

Dear Colleague

You are invited to join us at the launch of this new network which will focus on this important topic, and explore current and future research needs.

Keynote Address: David Doherty, Council for Industry and Higher Education (CIHE)

The Wilson Review (2012) indicated that both the sector and employers needed to focus on fostering mutual relationships.  But what does this mean?

In response to the Wilson Review, and at the request of the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), CIHE are creating a National Centre for Universities and Business (NUCB).  What research needs will this new body have?



11.30              Introductions

12.00              Keynote address and questions

13.15               Lunch and networking

14.00              Roundtable discussions:

How can HEIs be encouraged into trusting partnerships that enable them to differentiate their offer and share territory and contacts? Come with success stories

What works well and what doesn’t?

15.15               Final remarks and conclusions

15.45               Close


If you are currently working on research into university/employee relations and would like to share your work at this event, please let us know on

Future events run by the network will focus on short internships and work experience (led by Southampton Solent University) and the effect of Placements on Employability and Academic Performance (led by Aston University), on Enterprise Education and work with SMEs.  We hope in doing this to link with other organisations such as the Higher Education Academy  (HEA), Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) and the Association of Sandwich Education and Training (ASET).



Professor Helen E Higson OBE, Professor of Higher Education Learning and Management, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Aston University

Dr Richard Blackwell, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Southampton Solent University
