Current discussion about graduate employability and career options for graduates provides the opportunity to assess the degree choices students make and the skills they learn.  As part of an LJMU Curriculum Development Internship, two students contacted employers in the forensic science (and related industries) field and identified skills that employers feel that graduates lack.  Three sessions were then devised to embed these enterprise/personal skills into a skills module.  Student engagement was excellent and further work is now being undertaken to embed similar sessions into subject specific modules.
