The HEA is hosting the CEO of the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) Boston, Massachusetts, Dr Michael K Thomas, who is on a fact finding mission to the UK about graduate employability.
NEBHE has formed a Commission on Higher Education & Employability to develop an action agenda, policy recommendations, strategies and next steps to align institutions, policymakers and industry to increase the career readiness of graduates of New England colleges and universities. The Commission is due to report early next year.
Doug Cole, Head of Student Success at the Higher Education Academy (HEA), is contributing a chapter on the “Language of Employability” to a new book written by leading academics in Australia about how well universities are preparing students for global employment in the 21st century. The book is being co-edited by HEA Principal Fellow Professor Joy Higgs from Charles Sturt University.
