Advance HE publishes latest edition of employability case study series

25 Jan 2024 | Advance HE The fifth publication of case studies linked to Advance HE’s Employability Symposia is now available for Advance HE members to download.

More than 20 examples of good practice from the higher education sector feature as case studies in Advance HE’s latest compendium on employability, published today. 

Lighting the Labyrinth: enhancing student success through the 3Es brings together more than 20 case studies of sector good practice on employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship. It is the fifth publication in the series linked to Advance HE’s annual Employability Symposia and continues to outline ‘what works’ to equip graduates with the skills they need to enter and drive forward the workforce. 

Edited by Stuart Norton, Michelle Phillips and Iwi Ugiagbe-Green, the case studies showcase good practice examples from a wide range of institutions, subject areas and context, and are split into five overarching themes: Authentic assessment, Enterprise education, Multi/inter-disciplinary, Sustainability and Work-integrated learning. 

Stuart Norton, Senior Consultant (Education) at Advance HE, said,  

Lighting the Labyrinth: enhancing student success through the 3Es seeks to consider and suggest ideas and future developments for all of us working in higher education, to continue to improve how we enhance the success of our students through enterprise, entrepreneurship and employability education.  

“To ensure that HE institutions are equipped to produce highly employable graduates, we must foster a culture of employability that permeates every aspect of the educational experience. 

"Employability is not a destination; it's an ongoing journey of continuous learning, adaptation and growth. By working together, educators, students and institutions can create a supportive ecosystem that empowers graduates to thrive in an ever-changing world. The future of our graduates and our society depends on it.”
