Sheffield Hallam University: Employability framework
The Case Study focuses on Sheffield Hallam University's new Employability Framework. This relates to existing policies and frameworks and is based on many years of practice. It defines employability and articulates the features that should be embedded in the curriculum in order to encourage it. We believe that such embeddedness is the only way to support the diversity of our students. The Case Study also describes how that Framework has been developed and in doing so describes those aspects of the University's infrastructure that have enabled it. It summarises a very 'joined up' approach, which builds on and pulls together a range of practices in developing important aspects of employability. For Sheffield Hallam University, the employability of its students is central to its values and vision and the University has a long tradition of vocational and professional education.
