Author(s)Jari Riiheläinen
The presentation will provide data on employability-related issues collected by the Eurydice-network for the forthcoming Eurydice Higher Education report "Access, Retention and Employability". It will first give a brief overview of different general approaches to employability in European countries. This is followed by presentation of the data on measures aimed at enhancing employability of graduates. Indicators include, for example, whether countries do labour market forecasting and whether employers are consulted when designing curriculum or teaching, availability of career guidance, employability-related criteria in quality assurance procedures and graduate tracking. Lastly, some issues related to employability arising from site visits to eight HE institutions will be described.
