Enclosed on this portfolio are some files from the Criminology Careers information day at the University of Lincoln (July 2010). The powerpoint presentations include details of a new 'employability' module entitled 'Criminology in the professions', plus some research data from the students who studied the module. There is also some information from data collected from a sample of criminology alumni (1999-2008) and from a sample of employers collected by 'survey monkey'.
In March 2010, the School of Social Sciences at the University of Lincoln ran a ‘Criminology’ alumni evening inviting seven alumni from a variety of employment areas. This evening was filmed and the footage was turned into an information DVD called ‘Life after Criminology’.
The DVD was designed to contain useful advice for current students about how they might improve their employability, and could also act as pre-entry guidance for students interested in studying criminology at university. As well as advice from criminology alumni, it contains contributions from academic and careers staff, as well as criminology students.
