Getting Employers Involved

The relationship between academic study and outside audiences plays an important role in developing student skills and attributes needed for the workplace. Whether it's in the form of lecturers with experience of working outside of academia, or employers getting involved with presentations, mentoring schemes or even teaching, there are plenty of examples to be found within the University.

Below are a selection of video clips that demonstrate the variety of ways that employers can be involved in a module or a module's assessment.

"I have learnt a lot from a service point of view in terms of how to present information to students and I shall take these back and I know we shall start to look at how we can implement what they have been telling us."
