Developing and evaluating a programme embedding employability in a higher education institution
Embedding employability has become a paramount issue for learning institutes as employers want work ready students and it has been one of the key performance indicators of colleges and polytechnics. Feedback from external stakeholders, monitors, tutors and students indicated that skills required for enhancing employability need to grow within the Health Studies qualifications as the emphasis of the curriculum is on providing academic skills rather than attributes required for producing a holistic workforce suitable for Canadian workplaces. The outcome of the proposed study will be a well-developed and evaluated employability programme that is naturally embedded and compatible with the academic programmes of a tertiary (Post-Secondary) institution. The developed programme embedding employability will include all the fundamental components of an academic programme such as course aim, learning outcomes, topics, mode of delivery, assessment, and learning resources.
