STEM2020 - Skills progression in practical science within the Life Sciences: Do students recognise the skills they have developed as employability skills?

A student survey explored (i) what practical and problem-solving skills students had developed while undertaking a Level 2 field investigation, (ii) how this helped them to successfully complete a more challenging Level 3 follow-up investigation and (iii) whether they could articulate these skills as being relevant to employability. Finally the session explores what the OU can do to make the relevance of these investigations clearer to students.
