Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Listening to the student voice: Consideration of capitals in employability teaching and learning in higher education

From a study that listened to the student voice psychological capital has been found to be among the skills students develop alongside more traditional competencies. Data has been collected from students undertaking a ‘Professional Development’ module across Business and Management degree programmes. The aim is to find improvements in employability frameworks that meet the needs of both students and other stakeholders. This paper finds that a range of capitals are developed but confidence is widely described as a positive outcome by the students as a result of their learning experiences conferring upon them a valuable capital for improving employability skills.
