Abstract

Psychology departments are increasingly being asked to consider the employability of their students, whether they intend to pursue a career in professional psychology or elsewhere. Embedding employability into what can be an already packed curriculum can be a challenge for academic staff, course developers and programme leaders who are not necessarily experts on the topic. This guide will introduce you to the concept of employability, and lead you through the issues specifically facing Psychology undergraduate provision. Information is provided on preparing students for working in a global environment, and developing their psychological literacy. The guide also offers 31 helpful and insightful case studies, demonstrating practically how some departments have helped their students to develop employability-relevant skills. This guide is specifically intended for use by academics, course developers and designers, programme leaders and careers tutors who wish to facilitate the development of employability in undergraduate Psychology students.
