University employability agendas, targets and strategies

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Over the past two decades in particular we have seen seismic shifts in relation to understandings and conceptualisations of employability and whose responsibility itis to cultivate and maintain it. Clearly the employability agenda has taken centre stage as universities and other tertiary providers demarcate and even celebrate it as a strategic priority. And given that The Foundation for Young Australians (2016)predicts that “today’s 15-year-olds will likely navigate 17 changes in employer across 5 different careers” (p. 6), there are startling and pressing implications for the employability agenda.
