Abstract

Dance Map – The Employability Journey is a mapping exercise that looks specifically and reflectively at where employability is embedded into the Dance Department curriculum. The premise for this research is to gather the opinions of early career graduates, practitioners, employers, faculty members and current students to build a resource and toolkit for Dance graduates. The toolkit aims to provide a user-friendly and informative insight into where the employability focus is explicit within the programmes, together with the identification of potential career destinations for Dance graduates. Through the examination of the pedagogical approaches and learning methods - such as experiential learning opportunities, working creatively, undertaking work placements or working with current choreographers - the importance of embedding these experiences into the curriculum will be explored in order to enable students to make the transition into the professional world and employment. It will identify a range of career options by focussing on the course content for both the BA Dance and MA Performance: Dance programmes at the University of Chichester. It will examine examples of where employability is the focus within modules, where employability is embedded within the overall programmes learning and teaching drawing on module case studies, graduate student case study reflections and the employer sector perspectives.
