Tracking the careers of graduates is well established in many EU and EEA universities and higher education institutions. But which concrete systemic approaches are used in the respective countries? What is the situation with graduates of higher vocational education and training, are there also methods of systematic tracking here? What progress has been made in recent years as a result of the European Council’s recommendation in this regard?
These and other questions will be answered in the study ‘Mapping the State of Graduate Tracking Policies and Practices’.
The study objectives can be summarised as follows:
- Analysing the recorded graduate tracking measures in order to assess the status quo and determining the extent to which these measures meet the requirements of the European Council recommendations and identifying areas for improvement.
- Producing guidelines for the design and implementation of various graduate tracking measures (surveys, administrative data) and dissemination of results.
- Mapping graduate tracking policies and data collection practices in HEIs in EEA countries (31 in total) at an institutional level through online surveys.
The study funded by the European Commission is coordinated by ICF (BE), with CHEPS (NL) and 3s as consortium partners.
