This project was awarded by the Department for Education and Skills. It built upon earlier work funded by the DfEE, ESRC and CSU and took the form of a major national survey of graduates and diplomates who completed their first degree (or higher diploma) in 1998/99. The research was jointly directed by Kate Purcell and Peter Elias. More...
Three further reports were produced as a result of analysis of the 1999 graduate cohort analysis:
Northern Ireland's Graduates: the classes of '95 and '99 , by Kate Purcell, Peter Elias, Rhys Davies and Nick Wilton, published by the Department for Employment and Learning (Northern Ireland).
Scotland's Class of '99: the early career paths of graduates who studied in Scottish Higher Education Institutions, by Kate Purcell, Nick Wilton and Peter Elias, published by the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council. A summary report is also available.
Finally, an investigation of teaching as a graduate career was undertaken, drawing on both the 1995 and 1999 graduate cohort data. This analysis was funded by the DfES and the report, Education as a Career: Entry and Exit from Teaching as a Profession can be downloaded here.
