Abstract / Summary

Funded by the HEFCE Learning Gain Programme, this project is a collaborative project between 7 institutions, the aim of which is to pilot and evaluate measures of learning gain (LG), with particular reference to achievement in employability. The institutions involved in the study are small institutions with specialisms in the Creative Industries.

The main aim of the project is to understand the potential to measure the learning gain from work placements and work-based learning as part of a course of study, primarily using existing data held by partner institutions (such as DLHE, employability and work based learning data).

If time permits, we will also test the hypothesis that there is a correlation between participation in professional preparation (including practice-based activities, work- placements, work-based learning or other professional skills development activity) and higher levels of achievement in employability. This will involve comparing the employability outcomes of students who have undertaken professional preparation activities with the employability outcomes of students on similar courses (or a different pathway on the same course) who have not. This activity will depend on identifying what data including additional data collections or structures would be needed to measure “professional preparation”.
