HESA Publishes Final Consultation on NewDHLE

HESA is now inviting feedback on their final model for NewDHLE, which will be used to collect information about what higher education (HE) students do after graduating.

The model comes after an 18 month review in collaboration with experts from HE and beyond. The proposed model aims to capture data using more efficient and future-proof methodology and also contains a number of new questions, which HESA believes will ‘redefine how we discuss successful graduate outcomes’.

This second and final consultation follows on from the first consultation which ran from June – July 2016. The original consultation was designed to gain general views on what information needs to be gathered about destinations and outcomes for those leaving higher education and to gauge overall feedback on a range of tentative proposals.

The final model HESA has now set out includes details of the survey design, including an interactive mock-up of the proposed survey questions; the proposed practicalities and management of the survey; HESA’s implementation plan detailing the proposed timeline for the rollout of the model’ and a rationale explaining the major decisions that they have made as part of the review.

The consultation questions are designed for HE providers to best answer, so we strongly encourage all Independent HE members to respond to the consultation individually. We will also be submitting our own response on behalf of the independent HE sector.
