Abstract Title: Developing a Sector Wide Approach to Employability
When: Day 2 (15th November, 2017) | 14:15 – 14:55[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]Abstract:
Employability has become a buzzword in recent years, which has not helped in our understanding of what it means and why we should pay attention to it. All those involved in higher education have a responsibility to help students prepare for the world beyond it. To this end, we need to be clear about what our focus on employability should be and how we can help to achieve it.
With this in mind, the HEA has developed the Framework for Embedding Employability in Higher Education, that offers a structure and methodology that supports staff and will also help to ‘join up the dots’ which students often struggle to see the connection between. The Framework has been designed to bring people together, engaging and supporting a diverse range of audiences including staff, students and employers.
The HEA Framework for embedding employability in higher education has the potential to transform the way that institutions approach and embed employability. At a critical time for the future of teaching and learning in HE as the world is changing globally, now is the time to reflect on current provision and ask if we are doing everything we can to help students develop their full potential.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][button icon=\”icon-left-big\” url=\”https://clicks-uae.com/mena/forum-structure-program-2/\” background=\”#941c1f\”]Go Back[/button][/vc_column][/vc_row]
