Enhancing employability

The lack of business skills and commercial awareness in STEM graduates has been lamented by industry in recent years. The Royal Society of Chemistry has commissioned a set of resources for teaching contextualised and relevant business skills to chemists for integration into the curriculum. Our business skills resources cover the following topics: intellectual property, project management, finance, market analysis and production.

In addition, we have collated a set of ‘Context and Problem Based Learning’ (C/PBL) resources, which aim to increase students’ engagement with the subject and enhance students’ employability skills by fostering the development of transferable skills valued by employers, such as: communication, team working, and problem solving. C/PBL resources are based upon real-life applications of the principles, techniques, and experiments that students encounter in their undergraduate courses.

We hope these resources will prove useful in enhancing the employability of chemistry graduates.
