STEM degree provision and graduate employability: Wakeham review - terms of reference

Terms of reference for a review of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) degree provision and graduate employability.


This independent review will look at the provision of STEM degree courses and how their associated accreditation arrangements support graduate employability. It will identify whether there are areas which need further investigation.

The review will focus on gaining a better understanding of the skills requirements of employers, how STEM graduates’ skills and knowledge relate to labour market demand, and how existing accreditation systems support this.
