employability

The U21 Employability Group is a community of employability and careers professionals dedicated to enhancing students’ educational experience, specifically as it relates to the experiential learning process that enhances employability. We define employability as the holistic process of self-reflection, learning and development, and the translation of this into effective workplace practices. This includes, but is not limited to, work integrated learning, extracurricular experiential learning, career development learning, industry and employer expectations, and recruitment practices.

The purpose of the U21 Employability Group is to promote and enhance the sharing of knowledge, expertise, and professional development amongst employability and careers services across the U21 network. With members comprising Directors of Careers and Employability Services, the group will build a community of practice across the U21 network, undertaking collaborative projects to enhance the experiences of our students.
