On-line focus group participants needed!

We are looking for AHSS graduates to join one of our online focus groups, which will run in June to talk about where they are employed, the jobs they do, and the skills they demonstrate. The British Academy is funding this project and believes that there is a growing need for a better understanding of whether the UK has got the right balance of skills, skill levels and disciplines for the future.

The researchers are interested in talking to graduates from both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The subjects covered by the research include creative arts, social studies, law, business and management, mass communications and documentation, languages, and historical and philosophical studies.

If you are interested, we would love to hear from you so that we can get in touch to invite you to take part in an online focus group.
If you take part in one of our focus groups we will give you a £10 Amazon voucher as a thank you for taking part.

How to join in:
Please take a few minutes to find out more about the research at: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/ier/research/ahss_2017 If you are interested in taking part in a focus group you can register your interest by completing the consent form on the sign-up page.

Alternatively, if you have any questions about any aspect of the study, or your participation in it, please contact: C.Lyonette@warwick.ac.uk
