The HEFCE domain - - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.

In November 2012, HEFCE outlined planned policy changes to the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. These regional workshops aimed to support further education colleges (FECs) through the policy changes. 

In April 2013, HEFCE confirmed the policy changes related to the DLHE and invited all FECs to our DLHE workshops in August.

The workshops included:

  • testimonials from higher education institutions (HEIs) that run the survey
  • presentations from contractors on what they offer in terms of running the survey on behalf of institutions
  • HEFCE data quality requirements
  • an open forum for FECs to share good practice and ideas around the DLHE survey.
