This workbook presents theory, good practice, practical strategies, definitions, and interactive exercises about co/curricular employability. Curricular means that approaches and strategies which will advance students' careers upon graduation are facilitated directly by their educators and embedded in regular coursework, including graded assessment. A definition of co-curriculum is university-organised student experiences, which take place primarily outside of (but alongside) regular coursework expectations and formal study. Co-curricular activities are designed to support students' progression towards graduate success, including navigating the post-graduation employment environment and long-term career self-management.
