Case study 3: demonstrating employability and raising aspirations;

Case study 4: emphasising ‘life-wide learning’ with students and staff;

Case study 5: fostering confidence in articulating learning and achievements;

Case study 6: a catalyst for re-thinking the academic year;

Case study 7: a focus for students to review wider achievements with tutors.
