The Role of Employers in the Development of Employability Skills in Novice Workers
Smith, Erica; Comyn, Paul
Research in Post-Compulsory Education, v9 n3 p319-336 2004
The article reports on a research project about employability skills in novice workers. The findings were drawn from case studies in 12 enterprises across Australia that employed young people in their first jobs, in full-time work and/or in part-time work whilst at school. The research focused upon the processes by which employers developed employability skills in these very young workers. It was found that employers used a range of successful strategies, both formal and informal. (Contains 3 figures, 1 table, and 3 notes.)
