2019 surveys of employers and graduates
Veterinary schools took feedback from employers and graduates in two new surveys from the Veterinary School Council and RCVS. These surveys allowed veterinary schools of the UK and Ireland to collect feedback about their graduates, helping them ensure that veterinary education is meeting the needs of the workplace.
The surveys are now closed and the results will be published at the end of 2019.
2017 survey of employers
In 2017 the Veterinary Schools Council conducted the first survey of employers of veterinary graduates from veterinary schools of the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands.
Veterinary schools each previously conducted surveys of employers of their own graduates, but combining the surveys will build a broader picture of veterinary graduates than has been seen previously. This benefits employers in reducing their burden, and it will help veterinary schools to inform veterinary education through the use of data. It is intended that the survey is developed and repeated in the future, over time building a powerful body of information.
The surveys are key to veterinary schools’ broader engagement with employers, and the Veterinary Schools Council is continually looking for feedback on the surveys which can improve the next iterations. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know below.
