Employability Skills: Final Report--Development of a Strategy to Support the Universal Recognition and Recording of Employability Skills. A Skills Portfolio Approach
Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training
Employability skills recognition and recording models that are practical, cross-sectoral and consistent with life-long learning have the potential to be useful to many within the community. Students will benefit as they transition through and from school to work or further education and training. People in employment will benefit as they transition between jobs and between employers as well as to progress within an enterprise. People outside formal education and training and workplaces who wish to enter or to re-enter these systems will also benefit. This project has used existing research and stakeholder views to identify essential elements of employability skills recognition and recording models that have practical application potential for Australia. Stakeholder input has shaped the models and focused attention on issues that may need further consideration. It is clear that all stakeholder groups need to actively engage in supporting the active promotion and practical adoption of a portfolio approach to move the employability skills agenda forward. This project has found that the most productive next steps would be the implementation of activities to trial models of employability skills portfolios, based on the features identified in this project, as well as further consultation. Appended are: (1) Project Advisory Group Members; (2) Project consultations; (3) Current examples of employability skills portfolios in action; and (4) Bibliography. (Contains 1 table and 23 footnotes.)
