Annual Conference 2009: Student Perspectives on Employability

The third annual conference of the Sheffield Hallam University Centre for Excellence in Employability (e3i) will focus on student perspectives on employability. Although much has been written and researched in relation to employer and academic staff perspectives on employability, hitherto there has been little research or inquiry into student views. The conference will explore how students understand the notion of employability, to what extent they deem this an important aspect of their higher education studies, the aspects of employability they feel need a greater emphasis and suggestions for programme (re)design. The conference will feature:

  • A keynote speaker from the National Union of Students
  • Findings from projects at Sheffield Hallam University where academics have been working with students on the employability aspects of their programmes
  • Workshops by other CETLs which have an employability focus
  • The launch of the STARs electronic resource, produced by Sheffield Hallam University, the Open University, and the University of Bedfordshire, which helps students transform their experiences into skills and attributes recognised as desirable by employers

The conference will be of interest to students, academics and colleagues involved in supporting student learning and the development of employability skills in a university context.
