‘The Way to Work’: Graduate Employability in the Geosciences
The University of Plymouth is hosting the 2018 HEN Annual Meeting, which this year features graduate employability as its general theme.
This meeting will provide a forum for lively discussion and the sharing of good practice between teachers, students, practitioners, employers and other stakeholders on issues relating to the employability of GEES graduates. As ever we intend ‘geoscience’ to be applied in its broadest sense and very much welcome participation from across the GEES disciplines.
We intend oral presentations to comprise the first day of the conference, with more interactive sessions such as small group discussions and workshops taking place on the second day. We welcome offers of contributions across all of these formats and on any aspect of employability. Some suggested themes include, but are not restricted to:
- Current issues, future trends
- Engaging with your careers service
- Impressing employers
- The transferable nature of degrees
- Inclusivity and employability
- The role of the academic/tutor in employability
- Whole university/collaborative approaches
- The role of assessment in developing employability skills.
Our schedule will also be graced by the HEN AGM, to which all delegates are cordially invited.
- Professor James Griffiths, Emeritus Professor and Engineering Geology Consultant
- Simon White, Digital Director for Atkins
- Abstract submission deadline: 17:00, Friday 10 November 2017
- Registration: Monday 8 January 2018
