Advance HE Endorsed

Advance HE ‘Endorsed’ status is awarded to organisations who work with higher education institutions (HEIs) to provide resources that support student employability.

Employability of graduates is a vastly important consideration for HEIs. With an acute focus on teaching excellence and student outcomes, coupled with a time of intense development in the policy landscape, in England in particular, Advance HE Endorsed can help you differentiate the value of your employability provision.

Receiving ‘Endorsed’ status demonstrates commitment to ensuring an integrated and accessible way for students to engage with employability highlighting that engagement with the resource offers strong preparation for success, either through PG study or beyond higher education into employment. Through alignment with Advance HE’s strategic framework you can focus your resource to provide maximum gains, ultimately for the betterment of your students.

Four-stage process to apply the framework in practice

The areas of focus are encircled by a cyclical process that is key to embedding employability across the institution and at a programme level.​​​​​​

Stage 1

Defining employability including all key stakeholders and making this explicit at an institutional and programme level and with all your students.

Stage 2

Auditing and mapping provision and support, considering all policies, practices and processes against the definition agreed at Stage 1.

Stage 3

Prioritising actions to address gaps, sharing best practice and agreeing measurable outcomes/outputs within policy, practice and processes.

Stage 4

Measuring impact, identifying measures of success and using feedback and evidence to inform future priorities, resourcing and areas of focus.

The Employability Framework

The Employability Framework was developed following extensive HE sector consultation and is aligned to the Professional Standards Framework. This internationally recognised framework helps to drive improvements in, and raise the profile of employability in teaching and learning within higher education and is designed to provide support and guidance to HEIs. 

Employability is relevant to all students at all levels of study, so includes both undergraduate and postgraduate provision.
