During 2005, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales contracted IES to conduct a study to inform higher education institutions and other key policy-makers in Wales about the Welsh graduate labour market.

The research was a response to recent imperatives: that Wales should embrace the knowledge economy, and that its higher education institutions should play their part in producing graduates with appropriate skills and able to meet the needs of Welsh employers.

The research also examined the changing nature of graduate jobs and how graduate employability policies might be further developed, and looked at how Welsh experiences compared with other and similar regions.
