This week, employABILITY thinking launches the new music toolkit on the student website with a great resource titled Compose your future. The resource comes from our Developing EmployABILITY Music Toolkit and it is easily adapted to other disciplines: e.g., engineer your future, design your future etc.
Why is there a music toolkit? EmployABILITY lead researcher Dawn Bennett has a background in music and some employABILITY resources originated in music education!
The book in which some of the originals were published is titled Life in the real world: How to make music graduates employable and is available as an e-book and in hard copy.
Compose your future helps students to 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 common core and foundation units.
As with all our resources, it is most effective if students have first created a personalised employABILITY profile as part of the 6-step Developing EmployABILITY process.
There is no charge for employABILITY resources and all members of the Developing EmployABILITY community have access. To become a member, register here.
