My project, which was presented and discussed at the RAISE conference in 2022, is an employability-focused digital space for students within the Lincoln School of Film, Media and Journalism. This space is an animated website that students access via their Blackboard module sites, and directly, in order to view current opportunities for work placements, experience, events, festivals and careers initiatives. Via a user- friendly blog, students can scroll through various news and opportunities that interest them and click for contact details to find out more. The Student Lounge, created in 2021, has become the key site for employability within our school and its footfall has increased since its inception, with many students checking in regularly to find out the latest updates and events that are taking place on campus and nationally. The aim of the Lounge is to foster an understanding of the importance of employability in Higher Education, and to make students aware of how accessible opportunities for work experience and internships are to them. Key employability-focused staff members have access to the site to enable updates to remain relevant and regular. I also circulate Lounge highlights to all students in our school to ensure their continued engagement.
