The Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services
The Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) is the expert membership organisation for higher education student career development and graduate employment professionals. Through our members, we support the best possible career outcomes from higher education for individuals, institutions, society and the economy.
Social Mobility is a key strategic area for AGCAS, and through our Social Mobility and Widening Participation working party, we support the enhancement of social mobility through the promotion of best practice in the HE sector.
Their Social Mobility Toolkit is an evolving resource bank of information and case studies for AGCAS members to contribute to, review and learn from. They also working closely with employers to develop and enhance recruitment practices and engagement with students from widening participation backgrounds. By learning from each other, AGCAS helps level the playing field and achieve greater equality of opportunity for all HE students and graduates.https://www.agcas.org.uk/
