Employability in the curriculum

In line with best practice, the Careers Network has been actively working in partnership with Schools to integrate credit bearing personal and career development planning into the curriculum.

We deliver or co-deliver a range of personal and professional development seminars, workshops and modules, tailored to the needs of specific cohorts of students. This can take the form of stand-alone workshops that sit outside the curriculum or full or partial credit-bearing modules that sit within the curriculum. Examples of standalone seminars and workshops include:

  • Networking & Creating A Positive First Impression
  • Internship Preparation Workshop: Sourcing Strategies
  • Career Planning: Now, Next and Networking
  • Succeeding at Interview
  • Alumni Panel Event: Spotlight on Careers in the EU

Carrying up to 5 credits, academic modules we are currently delivering or co-delivering are listed in the table below. These modules enable academic Schools to meet certain strategic objectives while also addressing the career and personal development needs of students.
