Outstanding Employer Engagement Initiative
The Times Higher Education Awards 2016 presented Liverpool John Moores University with the Outstanding Employer Engagement Initiative award at the annual gala event. To be considered for the award, universities must demonstrate an innovative approach to delivering workforce development in students.
LJMU was awarded for the student involvement initiative at the Sound City conference held in Liverpool in 2015. As part of the scheme, students from 11 degree programmes gained 240 days’ work experience involved in all aspects of organising and running the event, gaining invaluable experience.
