Bibliographical note

This collection of case studies arose from the work of the sigma Network Employability Special Interest Group. The Employability SIG was founded in 2016, alongside SIGs in Accessibility and The Needs of Statistics Support. These initiatives were developed by the sigma Network to address over-arching themes of interest to the mathematics and statistics support community in higher education.
