How will PSRBs engage with the HEAR?
As organisations that work closely with employers, PSRBs have a keen interest in the HEAR - both as recipients of HEAR information and as potential contributors to its content.
PSRBs we have spoken to consider that the HEAR is a welcome development. PSRBs welcome the HEAR’s introduction and the additional information it will provide about potential employees. Section 5.2 explicitly enables the professional status of undergraduate awards to be acknowledged, drawing upon nationally applicable statements for inclusion developed by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) in collaboration with PSRBs.
