Graduates should be equipped to make successful transitions - not just on graduation but throughout their life - and to manage their careers effectively. All stakeholders have a responsibility to recognise and develop the wide reaching aspects of employability and encouraging this will support the integration of employability into the culture of the institution. We look forward to working with you to make this happen.”
