Food for Thought session - What makes a student employable

Posted by rmt22 at Jan 04, 2017 10:18 AM |
As we begin the spring term, the first Food for Thought lunchtime talk focuses on something that is on everyone's mind right now.

This session, is being held on Wednesday January 18 at 12.30pm in the Ken Edwards First Floor lecture theatre 1.

Delivered by Richard Wilcock, Deputy Director, Career Development Service and Martin Perfect, Employer Relationships Manager, it looks at just what it takes to make a student employable in the competitive graduate job market.

Whilst universities have always recognised their responsibility to help students develop fulfilling and rewarding careers, this area of HE provision has become increasingly important in recent years with the scrutiny that the likes of rankings tables and the Teaching Excellent Framework have placed on what our graduates are doing six months after graduation.

So what are universities doing to ensure their graduates quickly secure graduate level careers or study opportunities, and how do they provide an effective service for thousands of students with different aspirations and abilities?

This briefing session will take you through everything you need to know about student employability and also outline the approach the University of Leicester is taking – a strategy which has seen the institution in the last two years become a UK top 25 targeted university by employers and the recipient of two prestigious Association of Graduate Recruiter (AGR) national awards.
