INTELEC – International Teaching & Learning for Employability and Citizenship

EURASHE is a partner in the INTELEC project on International Teaching & Learning for Employability and Citizenship.

Underneath are further information on:


The rationale of the project come from the need to actively pursue the main goals settled in the Yerevan Communiqué, especially those on:

  1. Enhancing the quality and relevance of learning and teaching;
  2. Fostering the employability of graduates throughout their working lives.

The context of the project is the increasing internationalisation of higher education in a globalising world as emphasised in the new structure of the Bologna Follow Up Group setting an Advisory Group on Internationalisation of the EHEA to promote regional dialogue with other regions of the world on mutually agreed topics such as graduate unemployment and quality of teaching and learning.

The expected results of the proposal will be to identify and propose measures:

  • to overcome the existent difficulties at national and institutional level to develop quality in teaching and learning initiatives, supporting higher education institutions and staff in promoting pedagogical innovation in student-centred learning environments and in fully exploiting the potential benefits of digital technologies for learning and teaching;
  • to provide clear criteria for institutions to foster employability in rapidly changing labour markets – characterised by technological developments, the emergence of new job profiles, and increasing opportunities for employment and self-employment;
  • to inform the stakeholders and national authorities across and beyond Europe about the outcomes and recommendations from the project to enhance quality in teaching and learning and fostering employability, supporting its implementation across and beyond the EHEA.

Two major international conferences will be organised by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport on the two self-selected priorities. The conferences are aimed mainly at opening policy dialogue between policy makers and representatives of the university world, within and beyond Europe.
