Employability is the ability to find, create and sustain work and learning across lengthening working lives and multiple work settings.

Employability development is the process of teaching students to think. It involves the cognitive and social development of learners as individuals, professionals and social citizens.

Employability is not a job. It does not come with the graduation certificate. It requires work throughout the career lifecycle.

Building positive relationships in life and work

People rarely work in isolation; rather, they operate as part of a team or multiple teams. Because of this, the success of any business or project depends to some extent on the teamwork of its people. If students want to develop their career opportunities, knowing how to work effectively in a team is essential. In this resource, students will learn more about the elements of teamwork and what they can do to develop their abilities.

Other resources to compliment this one include ‘Plotting your preferences‘, and ‘Conceptualising careers‘.

Engineer your future

This resource is designed to help students recognise the relevance of a unit (course) of study to their future lives and work. For this reason, it is a really useful inclusion in non-technicist and foundation units.
