The labour market for graduates is constantly evolving and job applicants are often expected to have new types of academic and non-academic skills. How can universities ensure their students acquire the most sought-after new skills that will make them most successful in their jobs?
Simonetta Longhi and Sarah Jewell have obtained funding from the EU for a new Erasmus+ project which aims at establishing a labour market to higher education feedback loop that will help universities to keep up to date with the new skill requirements.
The project, which is led by the University of Glasgow, started in September 2020 and is expected to complete in August 2023. See the funder website for updates: Employability Programme Development (EPD).
