Employability assessed: how can we measure and grade employability skills?
The sixth webinar in the Employability focused series will focus on how employability skills could be measured and graded.
In this interactive webinar we will explore the following questions:
• Employability assessed: how can we measure and grade employability skills?
• In what ways can you actually assess someone’s employability skills?
