Employability in HLS: What we learnt about students and how we supported them into graduate employment

Friday 27th June, 13:50 to 14:10


Karen Quinn

This session aims to unpick the range of initiatives that the Employability & Placement Unit (EPU) has successfully implemented to develop student employability in the Faculty of Health & Life Sciences.

The session is delivered by specialist practitioners with a wealth of experience and having delivered significant results in graduate employment at course-level across the Faculty. For example, BSc Psychology at Coventry University now ranks 7th nationally (Guardian League Tables 2014) – ahead of many of the Russell Group.

The session will also provide you with practical insights into how to successfully engage with employers, in order to broker valuable placement opportunities that will lead to graduate employment.

The session is not one that will draw upon any particular theoretical perspective, nor will it take any side in the employability debate. As such it will appeal to academic and professional services staff from a range of disciplines at the University.
