Networking Day for Humanities Careers Advisers - 2006

City: Central London
Venue: William Goodenough House, Goodenough College, Mecklenburgh Square, London WC1N 2AB, The Large Common Room
Date: 16 Jun 06
Time: 10.30 - 15.30
Event Overview:
The English Subject Centre, in collaboration with other humanities Subject Centres and their AGCAS 'buddies' at Liverpool and UEA, is convening a meeting for HE career advisers with an interest in the humanities. The meeting will provide a forum for careers advisers to discuss any issues of common concern and to share experiences. Dr Geoff Hinchcliffe, Skills Development Adviser at UEA will be giving a presentation on 'Capability' and Diane Appleton of Liverpool University and others will be describing their English Subject Centre funded projects to enhance services to English students. Other topics for discussion might include embedding careers management skills in humanities degrees and the use of work placements, but we will enable delegates to shape the agenda according to their own priorities.
