Abstract

Employability is an increasingly important part of students’ experience in UK universities. Embedding employability knowledge within ordinary teaching offers the opportunity to combine students’ employability development with subject learning but is disliked by educators since lecture time is usually only sufficient for the required subject knowledge. We present an embedded design that allows employability skills to be developed without requiring additional time. It has been adopted in an undergraduate module delivered to students at one of University of Greenwich’s partners in China. It has helped them improve their employability skills and be better prepared for their study at UK universities.
