National Employer Survey on Graduates 2014

The National Employer Survey on Graduates in Ireland 2014 is a partnership between the Higher Education Authority (HEA); SOLAS - the Further Education & Training Authority and Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI), with the online survey being conducted on our behalf by Insight Statistical Consulting. The survey was developed by a steering group with input from ​American Chamber of Commerce in Ireland (AMCHAM); Association of Higher Education Careers Services (AHECS); British Irish Chamber of Commerce; Construction Industry Federation; Department of Education and Skills; Education and Training Boards Ireland (ETBI); Enterprise Ireland (EI); Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN) / Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation; The Higher Education Colleges Association (HECA); IBEC (the Irish Business and Employers’ Confederation); IDA Ireland (IDA); Institutes of Technology Ireland (IOTI); Irish Universities Association (IUA); ISME (Irish Small and Medium Enterprises Association); & The Union of Students in Ireland (USI).

The first to have been undertaken on this scale, the survey will provide a snapshot of employer opinion with the results helping to inform policy direction in further and higher education. It offers you as an employer the opportunity to have your say on the quality and employability of Irish graduates as well as to shape the future as Ireland strives towards economic recovery.

Thank you for taking the time to participate and sharing your valuable insight. The length of the time required to complete the survey varies by organisation but on average, it should take about 15 minutes. It is possible to leave the survey and resume at a later stage (if you use the same computer) but you should aim to complete the survey in one session if possible.

All respondents will receive a summary of the results in advance of a detailed report which will be published in the coming months. All information received will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

If you have any queries in relation to the survey please contact David Harmon at Insight Statistical Consulting (dharmon@insightsc.ie). Queries about the research project should be directed to Tim or Maria at the Higher Education Authority (skills@hea.ie).
