Strategic development of communication training - building links to employers

Research carried out in 2011 focused on increasing knowledge of employer requirements for communication skills amongst UWE graduates.

In this project, the Science Communication Unit (SCU) used its knowledge and awareness of the science communication field to explore demand for similar services in other disciplines. In particular, this work looked at employer preferences for graduates to obtain related transferable skills such as those skills which are communications based, and to explore potential areas of teaching and training to be developed with colleagues in our own and other faculties.

The project was carried out by Clare Wilkinson, Karen Bultitude and Margarida Sardo, and was funded by HEIF Funding 2010/11. Enquiries regarding the project should be directed to science.communication@uwe.ac.uk or +44 (0) 117 32 83829.
