Improve student employability with a university IT agency and work related learning modules

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper presents an initiative to use an internal IT agency to guarantee all students in a range of computing programmes with at least one compulsory work opportunity for their work related learning module. The aim is to improve our student’s employability on these programmes. Our findings in the past 3 years have indicated that this initiative has helped to steadily improve our Computing student’s employability awareness and their employment opportunities. Further plans are being made to expand this model to other programmes.
