STEM2020 - Student perceptions and development of employability skills in a multidisciplinary, Level 4 Science module

The importance of students developing employability skills is well recognised in higher education (Wakeham, 2016). We researched students’ perceptions of their development of employability skills by examining a sample of their self-assessment scores (using radar diagrams) against learning outcomes as a proxy for these skills. 636 current students were invited to complete a questionnaire on their perceptions of employability skills development (n=74). These results will be presented, and the possible impacts this could have on future curriculum design will be discussed. Initial analysis indicates that students value most the employability skills that they see are closely linked to Science.
