The Fiji Higher Education Commission (FHEC) is carrying out the first-ever national Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS), with a view to this survey becoming an annual exercise. The FHEC is calling on graduates of 2018 from registered Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and government-funded HEIs like the Centre for Appropriate Technology and Development (CATD), Nadave, to take part in this inaugural survey.
The national GOS is part of the FHEC’s priorities in working towards developing linkages to employment. The GOS will build a comprehensive picture of career destinations and employment outcomes for graduates. Outputs of the research will provide an important measure of the effectiveness and performance of the Fijian Government’s significant investments in higher education and will inform future policy formation.
As well as enabling comparisons of performance on a range of outcome indicators, the national research will allow Fiji to benchmark itself against other countries who are monitoring graduate outcomes. Higher education institutions and their students also stand to benefit. Greater transparency over graduate achievements and participation in the labour market will deliver information of value that will assist career selection decisions.
The survey is aimed at 2018 graduates who:
Have completed a qualification from any of Fiji’s fully registered Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), including the CATD (Nadave) and are working in Fiji;
Are still looking for employment or are part of Fiji’s ‘informal labour market’ doing voluntary work in the community; or
Are now working overseas.
The national survey is live and delivered through an online data collection platform. The national survey is part of the Fiji Higher Education Improvement Programme project, funded with assistance from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) New Zealand.
