There is a wealth of good practice emerging from the employability and enterprise-related Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETLs).
We undertook a review of the outcomes of these CETLs on behalf of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) to identify and further disseminate this good practice. The aim of the review was to:
- elicit evidence of innovation and demonstrate where CETLs have been at the cutting edge of practice in employability and enterprise;
- provide clear evidence of the extent of this good practice to other stakeholders;
- provide a commentary quantifying and assessing the learning achieved to contribute to the broader understanding of the impact of the CETLs;
- provide a repository of resources to support and inform HEIs to enhance their own practice;
- propose options for ‘future-proofing’ the achievements.
This report highlights exemplars that reflect the wealth of excellent resources that both staff and learners in our universities can draw on to ensure that the right skills and attributes are being developed so the current and future workforce is equipped with appropriate higher level and transferrable skills.
