Engagement and Outreach

Staff and students in DeLC regularly stage events and undertake activities that take their university work and expertise beyond the academy and into local, regional and national contexts. Engagement and Outreach can involve working with businesses, public authorities, or with other educational institutions, for example in the secondary and primary education sectors.

The links on this page offer insights into some of the ways in which the department fosters links with partners or responds to the interests of outside parties. In terms of our student body, employability is a key factor, and you will see here examples of the ways in which students’ skills and career training are assisted through curriculum development, training events, student placements and staff exchanges.

The research undertaken by DeLC staff also reaches out – sometimes it filters into our Engagement activities but more often it is a concrete sign of the impact of our research projects and publications.
