The development of employability skills is an important graduate outcome and are now included in curriculum as learning outcomes. The design, delivery and assessment of subject curriculum is required to integrate employability skills that are in demand in contemporary workplaces.  Employability skills need to give students and future graduates the capacity to deal with change, uncertainty and ambiguity.

This online resource will provide academics with guidance and support to use a typology for evaluating your subject curriculum design, delivery and assessment.
