This guide provides a resource to aid higher education institutions in engaging employers in the curriculum, thereby enhancing the quality of student employability initiatives within those institutions. It is designed to present an overview of good practice, including case studies that illustrate various effective and sustainable ways of engaging employers in the curriculum.

It contains details of 28 case studies categorised into nine different types of employer engagement in the curriculum. Examples proven as sustainable are grouped under these types and summarised as case studies, together with general principles of good practice in enhancing students' employability. Two particularly well-established case-study examples are then further analysed, side by side. They show key features and critical success factors that could be applied to any proposed Scottish Higher Education Institution / employer partnership programme as a means of assessing risk and evaluating the progress of such initiatives. General conclusions and recommendations are also included.
