CaSE Response to the Postgraduate Study Consultation

29 May 2015

CaSE responded to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills’ consultation on support for postgraduate study.

The UK suffers from a skills shortage across the science, engineering, technology and maths (STEM) disciplines. This is highlighted by employers as the greatest workforce threat to UK productivity and is an increasing drag on the economy.

There is a need for the Government to encourage individuals to develop their skills and expertise beyond their undergraduate degree to address and reverse this skills shortage, and CaSE therefore responded to this consultation setting out some thoughts from the sector on their proposals.
