This is an exciting volunteering opportunity to become an advocate for the University through employability-focused forums.

What are Employability Advisory Boards (EABs)?

Employability Advisory Boards will act as a critical friend to help shape and deliver the University’s employability strategy. They will also provide all areas of the University’s academic portfolio with a direct and formalised link into industry, ensuring that our offer is consistently above the expectations of our students and employers.

By having a structured forum, employers will have input into the advancement of Westminster’s employability strategy including Work Based Learning and Placements project. EABs will also provide alumni and other stakeholders a unique way to engage with the University and provide us with a professional stakeholder group to consult on an ad-hoc basis.

EAB structure and format

From October, our three Colleges will launch an EAB for each of its four schools, allowing members an informal opportunity to share themes, ideas and network.

EABs will be chaired by Heads of School and attended by respective course leaders and School Employability Director/Coordinator where required. They will meet once a term (three times a year) with the first meetings due to take place between 2- 6pm on the following dates:

  • College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – Wednesday 16 October 2019
  • Westminster Business School – Wednesday 30 October 2019
  • College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries – Wednesday 6 November 2019

Venues to be confirmed in due course.
