Graduating from the Classroom to the Boardroom: Supporting HE Students’ Employability.

  The Get on Board (GOB) extra-curriculum programme started at Edinburgh Napier University’s Business School in 2013. Its goal is to prepare students to take up board level opportunities in local charities, voluntary sector organisations or public bodies. GOB provides students with the opportunity to develop key skills for employment, networking and have an opportunity to take decisions that affect their communities. Over a hundred students have taken the GOB Programme since it was first launched. Our Research has highlighted the good practice in the current Programme but also noted key areas to further augment students’ transitions to employment and support board “readiness”.
