Graduate employability and ensuring a good fit between those leaving universities and the job market has been a key concern for the last ten years.

These pathways will also open routes to higher paid careers for a wider group of talented people, helping to address inequalities in access to higher education. Universities have a huge role to play and the potential is significant.
