Employability Benchmarking for Institutions
The Dimensions of Employability
Each institution has unique challenges in scaling and refining its employability programs. So, Vitae developed a multi-faceted benchmarking assessment so that higher education institutions could evaulate practices based on 5 key areas of employability.
Relevance of Learning
What processes and systems are in place to support leadership and teaching staff in aligning curriculum with labor market needs?
Strategy and Employment Outcomes
Does the institution vision and mission reflect a commitment to student employability?
What employment focused activities exist to ensure job readiness and to foster employer relationships outside the classroom?
What types of career services and guidance are available to students and how are these activities resourced and organized?
How does the institution engage its alumni to support employability of current students?
