How our academic departments can help:
Talk to us – we rely on the support and involvement of departments to help us deliver an excellent level of service to students and we are always ready to discuss and develop new initiatives with you. If you can, please:
- Provide a nominated member of staff with responsibility for employability
- Encourage students to think about their careers as early as possible (but especially before the start of their final year). Some students may need to make early applications in their final year for graduate training schemes, explore our Careers timeline
- Provide an opportunity for us to deliver a careers induction talk (15mins) to your students as the very minimum
- Wherever possible, careers input to the curriculum as an integral part of the timetable; ideally as part of an established module
- If available support the Careers Service with rooms and facilities for departmental careers events and publicity to students
- Provide a link from the departmental website to the Careers Service website
- Promote careers events including careers fairs, alumni talks and employer incentives to students in your department
- Share with Careers and Employability when employers make direct contact with the department
- Encourage Students to become more aware of how they can develop their employability, we can offer support with this through the Lincoln Award
- Provide information about additional departmental contacts, for example administrative staff with responsibility for particular schools.
