Summary:This book discusses the topic of graduate employability from the premise that in this era of 'massification, economic austerity, and political uncertainties, higher education (HE) no longer guarantees a clear 'work place advantage. Divided into three sections, the book offers theoretical and philosophical discourses on the 'HE quandary, whilst taking into account - and critiquing - political, temporal, and national contexts. It culminates in an investigation into specific discipline areas. It offers insights into the way that institutions, decision-makers, academics, and professional support staff can work together towards ensuring that our graduates are able to cope with the varied demands and challenges of modern job markets. It harnesses arguments and reflections on the breadth and depth of the functions of HE, such as social transformation, promoting principles of social justice, and providing opportunities. It grounds these in a triadic model for enhancing student engagement and holistic learning, namely, the emotional, cognitive, and behavioural aspects. As an anthology, it is forward-gazing in terms of the sustainability debate, whilst still offering evidence-based, research-grounded, practical suggestions to readers looking for tips and tools of the trade.
