A review of the literature on current practice in the development of employability skills

This report collates and reviews the literature on current practice in the development of employability skills. This is with a view to demonstrating the contribution of libraries to employability and the development of 'graduate attributes' and situating libraries' 'traditional' information literacy role in the new broader academic skills landscape.

Areas covered include:

• What do employers want?
• Careers theory
• Employability frameworks
• Institutional skills awards
• Best practice examples
• Enterprise and entrepreneurship

The review draws on the findings of the Graduate Success Project, a BIS-funded joint AGCAS/AGR project that explores how graduates from a range of backgrounds make the transition to the job market, as well as work carried out by the AGCAS Skills Award Task Group, including their range of careers information resources.
