Aim of this workshop To demonstrate how local government and Higher Education can collaboratively: • take an evidence-based approach to addressing priorities • contribute to national as well as local priorities • consider fully the whole student lifecycle
What we did know • The shape of education across the 14-19 age range • The key issues for this age range affecting participation, attainment and progression • A good understanding of the characteristics of disengaged young people and a sound knowledge of local reengagement activity • A lot of intelligence on activity for lower achievers to reach level 3 by the age of 19
What we needed to know more about • Higher Education (HE) intelligence beyond the national statistical releases • The detail behind the HE journey of young London residents - participation, attainment and progression • The skills HE was providing compared to the skills the London labour market was seeking • Information on whether the HE investment was paying off - where our graduates getting good jobs

Project background and collaboration • Good local research undertaken by Newham and the University of East London showed a potential way forward • A partnership approach - offering the ‘scale’ of London provided researchers with: – the opportunity to work on city-wide analysis – sufficient scale to deliver robust information from the HESA Student Return and the Destinations of Leavers from HE Survey
Developing the ‘London story’ • Analysis of progression to university of 18-24 year old London residents in 2011/12 – full/part-time, first/undergraduate degree study (UK universities) • Time-series analysis showing trends across five years • Outcomes from HE study - degree classifications and post-degree destinations, including employment and salary range
Disseminating project outcomes • Wide distribution of the regional report and borough reports • Political briefing sent out to 1,861 elected local councillors – Does Higher Education investment pay off for young Londoners? • Launch event December 2013 at UEL attended by 50 plus professionals from local authorities, further and higher education • Action on Access-UUK-OFFA-HEFCE conference today
The research bonus • A comprehensive London-wide and borough-level analysis of the HE journey of young London residents: a regional and local evidence base • A means of engaging London’s political leaders into the HE world • A ‘line of sight’ through education from age 14 to 24: the relationship between different stages of education and pathways to employment • Developing a more refined understanding of the relationship between skills and the London labour market: one in every five young people in the UK are not in education, employment or training; by 2022 this will have cost the economy nearly £28 billion
