The announcement of the Higher Education White Paper has proposed the introduction the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). Universities are increasingly going to be measured on three metrics, one of which will be graduate earnings and employability. Academic libraries can contribute and at the same time raise their profile within their own institutions through the work of academic skills programmes, helping students to develop the key skills (‘graduate attributes’) they are able to take out into the world of work. This event looks at how libraries are bringing support departments together across institutions and assisting in the development of programmes that improve both students’ academic skills but also their future employability.
