Research output: Contribution to conferenceLecturepeer-review


Curricular design that combines academic, subject-related practical and transferable skills to meet the needs and expectations of employers, industries, and professional bodies is of tremendous importance. This has wide implications for teaching staff so, through UKPSF, it is essential to identify and explore these developmental needs. Staff should be afforded opportunities to develop their conceptual and procedural knowledge around the developing of student employability skills, to build repertoires of varied techniques and activities within teaching, assessing, and subsequent evaluating, and to amass knowledge of a variety of resources, grounded within their own discipline and at various levels. This presentation will provide examples from various ‘non-vocationally oriented’ disciplines of the types of activity embedded which promote employability skills.
