Employability is “a set of achievements – skills, understandings and personal attributes – that makes graduates more likely to gain employment and be successful in their chosen occupations, which benefits themselves, the workforce, the community and the economy.” Yorke, M. (2004), Employability in higher education: what it is – what it is not, The Higher Education Academy/ESECT

Employability skills are also referred to as transferable skills or competencies, therefore, it is not only about getting a job at the end but instead, about a broader set of skills and attributes that will enable a graduate to be successful throughout their working life.
