CONSULTATION ON STUDENT EMPLOYABILITY STRATEGIES AND PRACTICES AT EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES
On the occasion of the 6th Joint Workshop, UNICA, SGroup, and Compostela Group have launched consultation on student employability strategies and practices at European Universities. We would like to invite our members to respond to a few questions on existing practices in promoting employability, entrepreneurship, and profiling students’ competences with the needs of the job market. The survey contains 10 general multiple choice questions and will take you less than 5 minutes to complete. The questionnaire is available under this link and the new deadline for submitting your answers is Wednesday 4 May 2016.
The results obtained from member universities of the 3 university networks will be used to formulate recommendations and investigate the possibilities of joint collaboration to enhance the impact of Higher Education on graduates' employability and their successful entry into to the labour market.
Since 2009, three European Universities’ Networks, SGroup, UNICA, and Compostela Group organise annual one-day events designed to meet their member institutions' needs for latest and up-to-date information, good practices, and networking & cooperation opportunities. The 2016 Workshop will be sixth in a series of joint events and will follow "International University-Enterprise Cooperation for Adult Education" (2009), "Successful Management of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes" (2011), "Strategies for Successful Europe-China Collaboration in Research and Education" (2012), "Exploring academic collaboration between European and Sub-Saharan universities" (2013), and "Integration and Promotion of Administrative Staff Training at Universities across Europe" (IMOTION Conference, 2014).
