University of Exeter: The Exeter Approach to Employability

Exeter offers traditional academic and largely non-vocational programmes. None the less, the University has become well recognised for its imaginative commitment to employability which is central to the mission of the institution. Exeter University has over a decade of experience in developing employability and PDP-related activities, through a mixture of high-impact top-down and bottom-up approaches that are supported centrally through Learning and Teaching Committee.

The approach combines a broad range of curriculum-based and accredited and assessed extra-curricula activities. These provide students with a continuum of opportunities to enable them to enhance their employability and become more confident and independent learners. This represents a multifaceted approach to employability and skills development, and making sense of experiences through personal development planning. Every School participates in curriculum-based activities, with each being supported and encouraged to embed centrally developed teaching and learning packages.
