    @FuelRCA @CEAnnette I can't help but think that "employability" as a term is slightly off the mark. Seems to imply that we go & get "jobs"..

  3. @TheHuxCapacitor I know, 'employability' is still the most common term used by universities. Perhaps it has more relevance in other subjects

  6. @TheHuxCapacitor It could be argued.. But creativity & self-worth can be found in full time work (teachers?) & outside of work (art class)

  7. @CEAnnette I wholly agree & many people love their full-time employment, which is great, but employability as a mark of a Uni's success?
