- Space within the curriculum for students to gain career management skills and insights and to be encouraged to engage in timely career planning
- Enterprise education for all students, not just those that wish to set up their own business. Enterprise activities allow all students to develop creativity, leadership, negotiation, and confidence; all of these attributes highly valued by employers in general.
- Explicit recognition and valuing of employability across the curriculum – through employability relevant learning outcomes and assessment; highlighting and encouraging students to recognise the skills being developed; encouragement to engage with curriculum and extra curricula activities; plentiful opportunities for students to reflect on their development, articulate their development and plan their further development (PDP)
- Personal tutors and a personal tutoring system that is motivating and supportive in the way that: PDP is handled; career discussions enabled; and further opportunities and services promoted.
Does your curriculum do all these things? Can it do it better? Specific advice on these various aspects of curriculum design and delivery are available in more depth though the other tabs on this 'Employability in the curriculum and beyond' website.
CES and TLS can support you to develop employability in the curriculum.
