The work of the Employability Enhancement Theme ran from 2004 in parallel with the Flexible Delivery Theme. The Employability Enhancement Theme aimed to:

  • create a clear understanding of what the term employability means
  • raise the profile of employability and its benefits to students, employers and academic staff
  • encourage and provide help to Scottish higher education institutions in developing employability strategies
  • help embed employability within the curriculum
  • devise an employability strategy that worked in parallel with Personal Development Planning, as part of the Effective Learning Framework project.
