Scaffolding employability throughout undergraduate degrees: A case study in criminology
MetadataShow full item record
The employability of students is increasingly seen as an important outcome for universities. While a field placement experience is one method of developing employability, the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Griffith University uses a range of approaches to embed employability throughout its degree programs. The School follows a student lifecycle approach using the Employability Framework. Thus activities occur as students transition into university, transition through their degree and then transition out. Activities also involve alumni within the transition up and back stage. This paper provides a case study for how employability is scaffolded throughout a university degree program. The case study demonstrates how students can begin to develop their understanding and skills in the area of employability prior to commencing their study and then progressively throughout and after their degree program.
