STEM2020 - Transforming student aspirations: Embedding 5-year plans in the curriculum

Engaging students with planning for their future careers can be challenging, in particular in STEM subjects where high contact hours and coursework requirements can absorb their focus. Students may also be unaware of the changing nature of graduate roles and the need to be able to adapt and continue to learn. We will discuss the impact of embedding 5-year plans and employability milestones into the curriculum on students’ assessment of their skills, identification of goals and planning for their futures. We will review the effectiveness of different approaches to raise student aspirations.
