Concentrating on the level 5 law programme, this article analyses different methods for embedding both employability and personal development planning within undergraduate degree programmes. Focusing on 2 core modules, it explores how academics and careers advisers have worked together to design specific employability/PDP curricular interventions and evaluates their effectiveness by reference to both student and staff feedback.
