Whilst inclusive curriculum has become increasingly important in UK higher education, employability is often a neglected aspect of this discussion, added inconsistently through extra-curricular activity rather than integrated into teaching & learning. This project builds on ongoing work on the current inclusive curriculum to integrate employability development into good-quality teaching and learning, enabling higher education providers to support diverse student populations effectively.
Working with experts across The Careers Group federation and the University of London’s Centre for Online and Distance Education to help academic educators design and deliver their curricula. The project team will develop a toolkit focusing
on pedagogy, assessments, and content for employability. As a result, students will be able to gain the knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to successfully transition into their lives and careers after higher education and earn a good degree
as a result.
This dynamic resource will include the following:
- Core principles of inclusive curriculum supporting employability development through disciplinary teaching & learning
- A catalogue of examples for content, pedagogies, and assessment to support the design and delivery of an inclusive curriculum supporting employability development through disciplinary teaching & learning
- An evaluation tool for existing content
- A self-evaluation tool for recognising levels of staff confidence
- A learning gain tool for students
- A resources and references list
