The Employability in Practice initiative at Anglia Ruskin University aimed to develop employability in the curriculum as one dimension of the university's strategic commitment to active learning. A team of academic leads for employability (ALEs) was appointed to advocate applied and authentic learning, with responsibility for supporting all undergraduate course teams to redesign their programmes. The team became a key part of the wider development group supporting the rollout of the active curriculum framework through a programme of course design intensives (CDIs). To articulate employability as a dimension of active learning, the ALEs developed a design framework reflecting a set of graduate capitals. Using this, the ALE team produced a diverse range of tools for engaging academics, personal development tutors, and students. The chapter reflects on the ‘symmetry' and the compatibilities found in the active learning and employability agendas.
