Higher Education, Human Employment

Higher Education, Human Employment

By Heather May Morgan
A podcast channel featuring conversations about journeys through education, university learning and teaching, graduate skills and attributes, professional and personal development, employability, careers and life. With contributions from University colleagues, students, graduates, employers, friends... and anyone who wants to join in (you can volunteer!). It’s mainly here to dispel the myth that everything always goes to plan - and to show how that’s just great!
