Developing Skills and Employability

Helping students develop skills for life, learning and work has long been a priority for Newcastle. However, ongoing change in higher education means that courses are increasingly expected to explicitly address ‘employability’ in the teaching and support they offer students. Whether you are looking for:

  • more ways to incorporate employability and skill development in your courses;

  • information about what other courses and schools are doing;

  • an overview of Careers Service work in this area;

you’ll find ideas information, resources, and case studies in this developing section of the website.

We know that there is a wealth of innovative work and engaging activities taking place across the University. Over the coming year the Careers Service will be exploring ways that we can help you share good practice and experience. Part of that strategy will involve developing and making available case studies and profiles of innovative work and activities undertaken to support skill development and employability in programmes across the University.

We invite you to share your learning and experience with colleagues. To talk about providing a case study, to share resources, or to inform us of other work being done in your programme please contact Gigi Herbert.
