In the current climate of increasing cost of living, rising unemployment and planned changes to student loans, we need to ensure students have the skills, attributes and knowledge required to gain employment after graduation.

This symposium will bring together experts in the field of Employability and Entrepreneurship to discuss how we can embed attributes required by employers into teaching and learning curricula and learn about the latest initiatives being undertaken at higher education institutions.  

By way of oral presentations and workshops, delegates will be able to learn, discuss and share latest practices in embedding employability among a network of peers.

A call for contributions will open in November.

Symposium aims 

The aims of this symposium are to: 

  • provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives in teaching and learning; and 
  • provide evidence-informed examples and ideas for university staff and students to address current challenges in higher education. 

Who should attend? 

Teaching practitioners including: heads of departments, academic programme leaders and developers, all lecturing staff, learning technologists and staff focused on employability including those in careers departments and with employer liaison roles.
