Extending the Pathways datasets with new options including Access to HE courses and SQA Highers

4th October 2021 by Stephen Lockhart

This week we have undergone a big data refresh and are now able to offer more course options when choosing the version of Pathways to embed into your course pages.

As you know, Pathways clearly links your courses to future careers. When you generate the instance of Pathways to embed into your course pages you choose from a selection of course types. 

Thanks to a newly commissioned dataset from HESA and Jisc, we’re delighted to be able to offer you a wider range of course types to select from. Making the options much more tailored to your courses.

In addition to the current course type offering of:

  • A Level
  • T Level
  • BTEC
  • Vocational
  • Higher Education
  • Apprenticeship Standard

we can now offer new Pathways instances for the following course types:

  • Access to HE
  • City & Guilds
  • SQA Highers
  • University of the Arts London (UAL)

When choosing a specific course type, Pathways uses real student progression data to return the routes that students have followed - right from your courses through Higher Education and onto a career.

This means for each instance of Pathways we are highlighting up to 50 different careers that students have gone on to do.
