Employability in the curriculum

Embedding employability in your curriculum gives students the opportunity to develop their skills, experience and knowledge to help them make the successful transition from education to employment. It is relevant to all students at all levels of study, and in a competitive job market is increasingly important. 

It is vital that all students experience some level of embedded employability activity as part of their programmes; this idea is at the heart of the Bristol Futures Curriculum Framework. Creating authentic assessments and learning for your students, highlighting surfacing skills and encouraging reflective practice are all excellent ways to start embedding employability within your programmes.  


There are resources and support available for all academics wishing to embed employability activities within their curriculum:
