Enhancing Graduate Employability is the first book in HLST and BMAF's Enhancing series of case study books.
Examples of good practice in using partnerships with employers to create courses or in embedding employability and making it explicit within the learning experience.

They show examples of good practice in using partnerships with employers to create courses or in embedding employability and making it explicit within the learning experience.
The case studies were turned into in a book along with 10 case studies from the Business Management Accountancy and Finance subject centre.
