The Employability Network provides an opportunity for colleagues engaged in employability activity across the University of Leeds to meet to discuss successes and challenges, identify areas for collaboration, receive information from relevant University colleagues and to provide information and raise issues and business for the Opportunities and Student Futures Steering Group.
The format is informal, usually over lunchtime and typically involving a couple of short presentations from staff, students or external speakers followed by open discussion. Additional events are offered throughout the year to members such as training and opportunities to meet graduate employers. There is a SharePoint site which provides a virtual space for members of the University's Employability Network, or any staff with an interest in student and graduate employability, to share information, updates, employer and employability news, discuss – and get support with – issues, ideas or initiatives.
Anyone interested in joining the network - or in finding the date and time of the next meeting - should contact Matthew Howard: M.Howard2@leeds.ac.uk
