Employability and employer-ability: Connecting the two currents

  • Thursday 28 Sept
  • Level 2, Level 2, Rotterdam Ahoy

No matter how developed the ‘employability’ of international students or graduates is, they might still struggle to get hired due to the lack of ‘employer-ability’ at local companies. What is the role of higher education institutions in connecting these two currents? This poster shows how we are developing an online learning module on employer-ability, helping staff at companies, universities and in the third sector to develop partnerships, skills, knowledge and practices together.
