Abstract / Description

The current Widening Participation agenda is focused on enabling 'nontraditional' students to gain access to Higher Education. Many universities have already been successful in attracting substantial numbers of these students and are now seeking to help them access appropriate employment on graduation - to develop their employability. This paper describes the introduction of a curriculum-integrated professional placement module and outlines its perceived benefits to non-traditional students.
