Abstract

[Extract] If Australia’s business graduates are to meet their potential, they will need to have developed the ability to find, create and sustain meaningful work and learning across the career lifespan (Bennett, 2018). Employing this metacognitive definition of “employability” is critical for the higher education sector, particularly considering that metacognition contributes to the continued learning required by professionals if they are to grow and keep pace with both environmental and personal change. This project responded by addressing the need for a systematic and inter-institutional approach to realising sustainable employability education in business higher education thinking and practice. The project team trialled a systematic and inter-institutional approach to realising sustainable employability education in business higher education thinking and practice.
