Brookes Learning and Teaching Exhibition and Conference 2021

The Student self-perception of employability

Lucy Turner, Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment

As part of my research with the Brookes Scholarship Group, I have been investigating what the student perception is of their own employability during their studies and how this may change between the different levels of a degree and what programmes they study. I would like to present my findings of a survey and focus group to generate ideas on how we can support students in a post-Covid world with their potential for employment. This opportunity will also include my reflections of the two events I am chairing as part of the Creative Industries Festival which feed into this research.
