This session will look at the course based supports offered to students at a UK university. It has taken an innovative approach to supporting students with their employability from year one through to graduation. The continuing research aims to disseminate a non-traditional style of delivery to employability skills. The driver for this was previous, consistent feedback from students to traditional skills and employment modules being too broad and generic and wanting a more personalised approach. The business courses that have adopted this new and contemporary approach have embedded the concept in all years of study, building up a student's personal toolkit of skills preparing them for their careers and lives in society beyond graduation. This personalisation process, coupled with a view of transition that covers students' entire time at university, has had mixed results from both an academic and student perspective.
