Advance HE Teaching & Learning Conference 2018: Employability and its impact on staff: A New Zealand case study

Findings from focus groups (n=~100) and interviews (n=20) with staff from several NZ tertiary institutions identified factors that enable or hinder embedded employability development. Participants cited three main barriers: lack of strategic direction support and guidance; lack of understanding and awareness; and lack of resourcing and capability. This presentation describes the impact employability has on staff and a simple model to embed employability teaching will be offered. The model provides a framework to identify small but impactful teaching practices that promote graduates’ capabilities for successful lives and careers.
