The team work with each Faculty to identify and prioritise courses and students who will gain most benefit from targeted support. Get in touch with your dedicated team here.

Employer and Industry Connections and Vacancy Management

Employability Toolkit 

This toolkit aims to provide you with information and implementation advice on a range of employability interventions that can be used to increase work based learning uptake, and ultimately improve graduate employability outcomes, for hard to reach groups. The interventions included in this Toolkit were recently trailed by four UK universities (Ulster University, Aston University, City, University of London and Birmingham City University) as part of project entitled Levelling the Playing Field through Work-Based Learning. This project was funded through the Office for Students Addressing Barriers to Student Success Programme. Click here to access further details of the Employability Toolkit
