The Prime Minister’s former chief wonk has got stuck into the ‘is university worth it?’ debate this morning. It seemed a good reason, combined with A level results day, to present some new ways of looking at graduate salaries data from LEO.
We already know that a graduates’ social class origins have a big impact on their graduate earnings potential. This week’s LEO release gives us the opportunity to test this for different subject areas.
Women graduates earn less than their male counterparts immediately after leaving university and in the vast majority of subjects. We pick this apart and suggest what role universities might have to play in fixing it.
There are plenty of interesting insights and perspectives to be gained from a day’s worth of analysis of the the new Longitudinal Education Outcomes dataset. David Morris suggests some winners and losers from this release.
After the release of the government’s new LEO data, we draw some early lessons about what it shows about graduate earnings, the labour market and universities’ ability to influence the employment prospects of their graduates.
