Abstract

In the School of Humanities and Cultural Industries at Bath Spa University, employability learning is embedded within subject delivery. Although the learning outcomes remain stable across the School, the approach and method of delivery vary widely from subject to subject. Informed by the work of Bath Spa’s CETL, Artswork, the School's strategy recognises students' identification with their subject and asks each subject’s lecturing staff to develop approaches to employability that relate directly to the core values of their disciplines. Staff in the School are evolving teaching and learning practices that encourage students to see their employability as another way of developing their subject knowledge and understanding the relevance of their discipline in society. They work closely with Careers staff and Technical Demonstrators to co-deliver skills sessions to support students’ ability to take their knowledge and abilities into the wider world, both during their degree and as graduates. In this session, Historian Roberta Anderson and Novelist Mimi Thebo give an overview of this strategy across the School, and show specific examples of delivery in History, Media Studies, Creative Writing and English Literature.
