Embedding Employability Project


The DkIT Embedding Employability project represents the latest step in the Institute’s commitment to our graduates’ employability. Funded by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, as part of their SATLE Fund 2019, the project has offered staff, students, and employers an opportunity to exchange employability best practice.

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

The major benefit of this resource is that it records our documentation process in one place. Those documents include: institute policy reports and graduate attribute framework visuals; consultation tools including our focus group protocol, coding key, and employability survey tools; and awareness raising conference presentations. Other researchers may use our tools and replicate our report and conference presentations in their future projects with the National Forum.

Throughout this workbook students are asked to engage with the PCs Graduate Attribute & Mindsets Framework via a suite of activities or exercises. This engagement will provide students with the language of skills and attributes best suited to job application and success.

This Facilitator Checklist has been compiled from our experience as facilitators delivering the PACT Open Course with the National Forum. From our reflection, we created this resource to aid fellow facilitators save time and outlined key pre-Course, during-Course, and post-Course activities essential to the smooth running of all Open Courses.
