For educators to fully support students in an ever-changing world employability must be considered. With increasing numbers in the graduate labour market, graduates need to be able to compete - and let’s not forget those who are considering self-employment as an alternative option. An enterprising mind-set can help develop a number of critical components to enable students to succeed. Not only are these components, once combined with subject-specific knowledge and technical skills, attractive to potential employers, they also act as the foundation for developing the student throughout their career. The HEA’s Embedding Employability in Higher Education symposium An Enterprising Mind-Set for Employability aims to bring together cutting-edge examples of effective practice that are sustainable and impact at programme, school/faculty/college and/or institutional-level.

The symposia series is intended for anyone – managers and leaders, academic and support staff – with an interest in and/or responsibility for employability in higher education at all levels. It will be a useful forum to encourage the exchange and dissemination of different ways of thinking about employability and enterprise.
The symposium will feature a keynote presentation, followed by themed sessions showcasing case studies from the sector.
Delegates will have the opportunity to learn from leading practitioners in the sector, debate priority issues and learn from cutting-edge initiatives on employability and creating an enterprising mind-set.
The symposium will be facilitated by Stuart Norton, HEA Academic Lead for Employability, in partnership with experienced HEA Associates.
