Careers Timelines

We have devised career timelines for each year group, providing a useful checklist of actions that students can undertake at each stage of their academic journey to help them to prepare for their future career.

Promoting wellbeing in the curriculum

Wellbeing and positivity are important factors in academic and career success. These staff training resources describe pedagogies, tools and exercises which promote student wellbeing with a particular emphasis upon employability.

Graduate Labour Market

Future World of Work (FWoW)

So you can understand the challenges and opportunities facing graduates that the curriculum needs to address we’ve developed a suite of resources; the FWoW series. These are intended to support all aspects of curriculum development and enhancement, especially Course validation and subject review.

  • Global Trends (major changes over the next decade)
  • COVID-19 Impacts (effects oin the graduate labour market over a 1-5 year period)
  • Regional Developments (labour market changes in the greater Leeds City Region)
LMI Digest

We take the latest information from professional bodies and employer organisations, extract the main messages so you can have an accurate and up to date picture of the graduate labour market.

Regional Job Seeking guide

An important resource, aimed at a student readership, which gives a flavour of the existing opportunities in the greater Leeds City region, Manchester, Sheffield and York and how to find work in these areas. This is a dual facing resource: intended for self-supported use by students; but also useful for staff to use with students.

Graduate Outcomes (GO)

For support resources please see the GO page in the staff resources section.

Sector guides

As part of the process of agreeing your School Enterprise and Employability Plan, each School can request a bespoke labour market report focusing upon a sector (or sub-sector) which is decided with your Careers Consultant to be a priority to address.

These will be written over the course of the academic year and published as they become available in an accessible PPT format to aid dissemination. You can access all in-progress sector reports here (please click documents on the left-hand menu).
