[Extract] By 2019, almost half the Australian population had engaged in higher education (HE). In contrast to dominant media assumptions, this is not a sector that serves a small, relatively employable elite.

The employability of 21st-century workers demands career-long attention: “the ability to find, create and sustain meaningful work and learning across the career lifespan and in multiple contexts” (Bennett 2019). This is more complex than helping graduates get their first job. With funding constraints, COVID-19 and a diverse student population, employability development is no mean task.
