7 Focusing on ethnicity Unemployment for engineering graduates is particularly acute for those of black/bme heritage, across most university types including the Russell and 1994 Groups, but most acute in the post-92 institutions. Proportion unemployed: all graduates Asian Black BME White 0% 10% 20% 30% Post-92 Other pre 92 Russell and 1994 Group Proportion unemployed: all engineering graduates Asian Black BME White Post-92 Other pre 92 Russell and 1994 Group Source: Robin Mellors Bourne 0% 10% 20% 30%

8 Employment issues Work experience is highly rated by employers in engineering Of unemployed graduates two thirds of unemployed graduates had unrelated work experience A quarter of had none Unemployed graduates were less mobile than employed Source: HE STEM project led by Prof Helen Atkinson in the Midlands

14 From anecdote to evidence Action research Anecdote: Women don t perform as well at assessment centres FACT: In 2006/07, twice the proportion of men graduating with undergraduate qualifications in STEM entered SET professional or associate professional occupations (41.8 per cent) compared with women (21.0 per cent) Questions Evidence the numbers Explore assessment centre performance by gender Explore graduates experience by survey Outputs Short report Inclusive assessment centres good practice guide

15 Student expectations Fact Around three quarters of men and women undergraduate engineers aspire to a career in engineering or technology Male Fact Half of men and two fifths of women make that transition 50 % Female E&T Role Non-E&T Role Further study

16 Findings Behaviours of students Course content on teaming and leadership lacking Where students want to go and where they go Support resources to help facilitate learning for employability skills so students get the jobs that are right for them

22 Inattentional blindness Increasing our processing speed filtering.. at what cost?

23 Critical thinking being able to be critical of your own input, challenging your biases

24 Strengthsfinder 2.0 PERSONAL TUTOR SUPPORT UCL FACULTY WIDE PERSONAL TUTOR PROGRAMME Often the role of personal tutor is lost by the end of Term 1, if you haven t established a good relationship with your student. Talking to the students about their personal strengths, their ILP and short & long term goals has helped to keep discussions going throughout the year. G Roberts, UCL Engineering
