OfS offers £500,000 to get graduates working locally

The Office for Students has launched a competition for innovative ideas to help graduates find skilled work in their home towns.

Students who move away from home to work and study are more likely to find graduate-level employment, the OfS said. The regulator wants to help students who stay in their local area to find suitable skilled employment.

Announcing its funding competition, under which awards will range from £100,000 a project to £500,000 for collaborative bids, the regulator said it wanted to see projects that would help graduates change the local labour market or that would investigate the factors that affect graduates when they choose where to work after university.
