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.
