The research outlines an innovative assessment designed for level 4 students using the development of employability skills to increase student engagement leading to improved retention progression and performance. The research aims to identify how a simulation can be used to develop employability skills in undergraduate students by putting student’s outside their comfort zone and exposing them to new experiences. At the start of their undergraduate studies students were provided with a small amount of capital and required to start a micro enterprise they were then assessed on the process they carried out rather than the results focusing on skills development.
