The role of UK higher education (HE), further education (FE) and skills sectors in developing student employability is clear. Technology can be an enabler to the development and communication of employability skills, but are organisations and employers making best use of it?
This presentation aims to share and discuss the emerging themes and ideas being generated through our student employability project, which explores how technology can best support students to develop and communicate the skills that are needed for the workplace.
The presentation informs participants of what has been learnt so far and engage them in discussions. We will:
Share emergent themes including issues and opportunities from the study
Share, discuss and build on ideas for what organisations, programme teams and we can do to enhance student employability and the use of technology.
