Institute of Student Employers

Institute of Student Employers

The Institute of Student Employers (ISE) is the UK’s largest community of early talent professionals from over 700 organisations. For more than 50 years, we’ve brought together employers, the education sector and supplier partners to provide leadership and support in all aspects of recruiting and developing students transitioning through a range of education pathways.

We are a community, built by our members, for our members, with the collective goal of promoting best practice within student recruitment and development. Our impact makes waves in social mobility, diversity and inclusion and excellence within the workforce, across all programmes that support new entrants, career changers, reskilling and upskilling. Our members are involved in steering and working groups, planning our events and judging our industry-leading awards.

We provide the latest insights and data through our annual reports, as well as showcasing case studies, thought leadership and member insights through our Knowledge Hub, conferences and knowledge sharing forums.

Within apprenticeships the ISE is conducting research, delivering tools and providing case studies to inform employers of the value of apprenticeships for their organisation and assist them in their decision-making. The outputs include a groundbreaking Return-on-Investment tool to give clarity on the value of student recruitment programmes and the ISE Schools Outreach Report, Forging Stronger Bonds: Redefining Employer-School Engagement for Tomorrow. The Apprenticeships Working Group is continuing its aim of helping members navigate a complex apprentice market and create successful apprenticeship strategies with more helpful tools and guidance to be released.

ISE aims to influence Government and key stakeholders to enable a technical education system that meets skills gaps and employers’ needs.
