It’s inescapable; employability is a prominent feature of contemporary higher education. Globally, HE providers are examining the methods they use to enhance employability and increasingly there is a desire to strengthen and develop relevant activities due to a range of factors and influences such as graduate destination data, labour market detail, policy impact, and student expectations.
This symposium aims to bring together cutting-edge examples of how employability can be embedded at school, faculty/college and/or institutional levels. The event, by way of a keynote session, oral presentations and workshops, will provide a space to discuss and share latest practices in embedding employability among a network of peers.
- to provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives in employability;
- to develop a principled, and evidence-informed, approach to devising subsequent support and guidance for change(s) with regards to enhancing employability 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.
