Phoenix (the AGCAS journal)
Latest issue: June 2016 - Defining graduate attributes
The latest edition of Phoenix focuses on the topical, yet contentious issue of graduate attributes. Despite being widely preached by universities, careers services and students alike, confusion still surrounds the graduate attributes agenda. While some industry experts believe graduate attributes are the key to unlocking graduate individuality and success, others believe that the concept is too vague and could lead to the demise of graduate diversity. By investigating the pros, the cons and the point of graduate attributes for enhancing employability, this issue offers a comprehensive discourse on where the debate currently stands.
Phoenix is the AGCAS journal, produced three times a year. Publication dates are February, June and October. Phoenix was re-launched as a digital journal in January 2013.
