Graduate employment and accreditation in STEM: independent reviews

Independent reviews of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) degree accreditation and graduate employability.

Graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are critical to the UK economy. But some STEM subjects do not have a strong graduate employment record, and some employers are concerned that STEM graduates do not always meet the needs of business.

The government has asked Sir William Wakeham and Sir Nigel Shadbolt to examine these concerns. Their reviews will explore how we can improve the job prospects of STEM graduates and ensure that the UK workforce meets the long-term needs of the economy.
