The Employability Framework
We have developed an Employability Framework (also known as the ‘Implicit-Explicit project’) to analyse our study programmes with regards to employability competencies. The framework is linked to EDLAB's ‘Constructive Alignment’ project . We defined four groups of competencies that we view as equally important in becoming employable: academic expertise and skills, self-awareness, adaptability and social responsibility. We are encouraging all faculties to include employability in the continuous cycle of developing and improving programmes.There will be workshops for programme coordinators to help them implement the framework and create interventions that support competencies development.
