GDC online at the Guardian Higher Education Network
26 May 2011
Join the online Q&A on graduate employability on Friday 27 May between 1.00 and 4.00pm.
The economic shocks that caused the financial crisis may be behind us but its effects are still being felt - particularly in the jobs market. The shortage of graduate positions has led to many debates about apprenticeships vs. university degrees or more generally, whether higher education is equipping students with the skills they need to enter a more competitive work place. A degree itself is no longer enough.
On Friday 27 May, The Guardian will bring together a panel from within Higher Education (both undergraduate and postgraduate study) and the private sector to consider what more could be done to improve graduate employability. The LJMU Graduate Development Centre (GDC) members and students will be joining this online Question and Answer session, offering advice and support on careers, employability, work-related learning and the LJMU WoW® (World of work) Skills Certificate.
