These tools should be used in conjunction with the HEA Framework for embedding employability in higher education. The tools are built around a four stage process which includes:
- Defining employability: These questions can be used when creating and defining a shared point of reference for employability with your colleagues and stakeholders.
- Reviewing and mapping: The activities and questions support an initial review of employability, helping you to highlight areas of potential enhancement.
- Action planning: The aim of this section is to encourage a structured approach to action planning employability initiatives.
- Monitor, evaluate and measure impact: The questions listed in the final stage and the example templates can help you generate the evidence to verify the status of employability within your organisation. Responding to these questions and completing the templates will help you to track progress and to identify what is working and what needs attention.
