We know that, regardless of discipline, developing graduates for successful trajectories beyond university is of critical importance. Enabling our graduates to have a positive impact, whether that be through creating value that is economic, social, cultural, or environmental – or indeed a mixture of each, is the embodiment of this success.
The event, by way of oral presentations and workshops, will provide a space to discuss and share latest practices in embedding employability among a network of peers. The symposium will focus on employability initiatives that address the following themes:
- Sustainable development;
- Inclusivity and equitable opportunities;
- Interdisciplinary approaches;
- Global Citizenship;
- Co-design and partnership with students.
- To provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives in employability;
- To identify challenges, propose solutions and create a safe space to think forward;
- To develop a principled, and evidence-informed, approach to devising subsequent support and guidance for change(s) with regards to enhancing employability;
- To develop a compendium of case studies that will help shape and inform the sector.
