Plan Your Future! Career Management Skills for Students of Languages
Randall, Laurence
At the University of Westminster, the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures has developed a student employability and work-integrated learning project, "Career Management Skills" (CMS), for undergraduate language students. The main objective was to develop a comprehensive employability strategy for all students on all undergraduate language courses at the university. The programme has evolved to include among the employability provisions a Work Placement module, which started in the academic year 2014-2015. This case study will present the context in which both CMS and the work placement module were implemented, offer an evaluation of both, and assess their impact on students and on the undergraduate programme as a whole. A short list of references and links is included. [For the complete volume, "Employability for Languages: A Handbook," see ED566902.] La Grange des Noyes, 25110 Voillans, France. e-mail:; Web site:
