Student-led Employability Audit Toolkit

Lead Institution: University of Exeter
Collaborating with: Teach First, Nationwide, JP Morgan, Centrax, Airbus, Microsoft, RBS, Devon Education Business Partnership

What Next?

The project will have an on-going impact in the following ways, through:

1. The new Mathematics modules (a group project module and an Maths Ambassadors module) at the University of Exeter - These modules will continue to be available as an option to second year Mathematics undergraduates and will develop various employability skills that were felt previously to be lacking from curricula (such as communication skills, team work and project management).

2. Continued promotion of the student-led employability audit process to other departments at the University of Exeter - A monthly Education seminar has been established at Exeter to share practice and will be a way of ensuring the continued impact of the project. At the moment, it has been suggested that Camborne School of Mines would benefit from an audit.

3. The work of 'adopter' universities - Five universities received support from the project to establish their own student-led employability audits and these have resulted in a range of changes at a disciplinary level - see here for the audit reports for each of the 'adopter' universities.  

4. Embedding of the audit approach - The University of Exeter is continuing to explore ways by which curriculum review of this form can become more securely embedded within the curriculum to ensure sustainability and high-quality future engagement.
