HEFCE logoA report released today by the National Centre for Universities and Business (NCUB) and funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has found that being able to adapt to change and perform different functions adds significant value to the specialist knowledge of graduates.
The report entitled ‘Career Portfolios and the Labour Market for Graduates and Postgraduates in the UK’ is the first in a series of NCUB reports commissioned by HEFCE on business requirements for graduate and postgraduate skills.
Employers said that in some sectors the degree subject is no longer sufficient to identify the best candidates and that in a modern economy they seek agile staff who can adapt to rapidly changing conditions.
The full press release and publication are available on the NCUB website.
