The best place to start is with the behaviours you'd like your graduates to demonstrate. Then think about the knowledge and skills that they are starting with - the gap in between informs your development activity.

Keeping and maintaining a strong talent pipeline is proven to be more likely if you make sure that progression opportunities are put in place. Enabling mentoring within an organisation is another way to pass on information and ensure that valuable knowledge is not lost.

We suggest starting by understanding the behaviours employers look for in their graduates and embed their development into the academic framework. It can also be worthwhile to consider applications like ILM or CMI to showcase key leadership skills.
