Guidelines on Good Practice
Guidelines on good practice
The University's policy on Careers Education, Information & Guidance (CEIG) requires each school to produce its own statement about its role in supporting CEIG for its students.
The principles of good practice outlined below provide a basis for the working relationship between academic schools and the Careers and Employability Service (CCD).
They recognise the individuality of schools and that detail of practice will vary between schools. To be effective, collaboration between academic schools and the Careers and Employability Service requires:
1. That for each school both a designated Careers Adviser and an academic careers contact are clearly identified and recognised by both students and staff.
2. That the designated Careers Adviser and the academic contact communicate regularly.
3. That the designated Careers Adviser and the academic careers contact meet each academic year to review and plan school careers activities.
4. That school careers activities are recorded for use in review meetings and Teaching and Learning Review or exercises as appropriate.
5. That information concerning post-university opportunities for students is shared by both parties and communicated to students effectively.
6. That information made available to students is reviewed and updated to maintain relevant and accurate information.
7. That the designated Careers Adviser and the academic careers contact liaise over the collection and sharing of graduate destination information subject to the terms of the Data Protection Act.
