Graduate Employment and Skills Guide

The Department for Education and the Office for Students have released their Graduate Employment and Skills Guide. This guide is for students who are about to graduate and are at the start of their career journey.

It has been produced with 2021 graduates in mind, but current students and recent graduates may also find it helpful.

It sets out five important steps to help you, as students about to graduate, think about your choices and what you’d like to do next:

  1. Identify Skills
  2. Develop Skills
  3. Gain Experience
  4. Apply for Jobs
  5. Wellbeing

Each step gives you information and signposts you direct to resources and opportunities to help you develop skills, gain experience and build networks in preparation for a graduate career.

You do not have to take the steps in order. You can focus on any one or more of the steps you find most helpful.

The guide has been developed by the Department for Education and the Office for Students, working with the higher education sector and graduate employers.
