Description/Abstract

Enhancing the employability of students is central to national and institutional learning and teaching strategies. In the Department of Geography and Development Studies at the University of Chester this agenda is addressed through an approach which focuses mainly on curriculum content, student relection and careers awareness. One aspect of the latter is the use of graduate/undergraduate employability conferences, at which alumni recount their ‘stories’ since leaving the Department. Student feedback suggests that these type of events can help to expand fairly restricted ‘careers imaginations’ evident on arrival at University and confirm the longer-term value of the programmes that are being studied.
