PSS Postgraduate Evaluation Toolkits
The Postgraduate Toolkits provide HEIs with tools to support the evaluation of two areas of postgraduate education. The first toolkit supports the evaluation of placements in order to identify the return on investment of employers investing in placement students. The second toolkit supports HEIs and employers to evaluate and maximise the value of employees engaging on postgraduate programmes.
Part A: Placement Toolkit
Despite placements being commonplace in the UK, little has been done to measure the return for employers who invest in them. This toolkit supports HEIs, working with employers to predict possible return, as well as measure return once a placement has concluded. The PDF download of the toolkit introduces the toolkit and the tools. All tools are available as separate downloads.
Part B: Employee as Student Toolkit
The Employee as Student toolkit supports HEIs, working with employers, to maximise the fit of postgraduate programmes to the needs of the workplace and employee, and to formatively evaluate this. The toolkit is based on the popular evaluation models of Phillips and Kirkpatrick, and applies their evaluation levels to the postgraduate programme context.
