Measuring Employability Gain – approaches from different countries

Tuesday, 21 November 2017

A Joint SRHE / LEGACY event
 

In many countries, the way in which learning takes place and the level of skills and competences students gain at higher education has been criticised.  Both the transferability of skills and competences to suitable graduate jobs as well as the current assessment of learning gain are being discussed. In the UK, this has prominently resulted in the introduction of the TEF (Teaching Excellence Framework) in which learning and employability gain higher education providers are able to provide are rated.

This network meeting takes the opportunity to look beyond the borders. Speakers from Germany and Italy, together with a speaker from the OECD will allow for a discussion of the way other countries identify learning and employability gain in higher education.
