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.

It begins by challenging students to scrutinise graduate opportunities, to reflect on their own skills and attributes and then to consider the World Economic Forum’s ‘10 top skills for 2020’. Once students have completed these tasks, they can take a look at the creation of group cover letters.
