The institution provides a range of implicit and explicit opportunities to learners which include job getting knowledge and abilities, such as labor market information, interview techniques and curriculum vitae writing. Employability is, thus, more about ability than it is about being employed. To summarise employability means developing a range of achievements, understandings and personal attributes that make it more likely you’ll get a job and be successful at it.
