Enhancing and Sharing Employability Practice Conference
The Enhancing and Sharing Employability Practice Conference at Southern Cross University’s Gold Campus in February will bring together professionals from across Australia to discuss and debate the global challenge of employability in higher education. The conference is an opportunity to hear about the latest research, to critically examine how institutions are tackling this vital issue, explore best practice and join a community strongly focused on developing evidence-based solutions to support graduates as they enter the increasingly competitive job market.
The conference on 13 and 14 February is the culmination of the Embedding Employability Exchange Initiative (EEEI) involving 24 higher education institutions in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific which have been comparing institutional employability processes and infrastructure. The EEEI Project is a collaboration between Higher Ed Services, Advance HE (formerly the Higher Education Academy) and Online Peer Solutions. More information about the EEEI Project is available here - https://www.hes.edu.au/embedding-employability-exchange-initiative.
The first day of the conference, Wednesday 13 February, is dedicated to the EEEI Project with registrations exclusive to participating institutions while the second day, Thursday 14 February, is open to everyone with an interest in this topic. Conference delegates also have the option of attending an Employability Symposium on Friday 15 February hosted by Study Gold Coast.
Southern Cross University’s Gold Coast Campus is located at Coolangatta and adjacent to Gold Coast Airport which is serviced by daily flights from Melbourne, Sydney, Cairns and Auckland. It is a 90-minute drive from Brisbane.
North Kirra Beach is just 400 metres from the campus and will be the location for an informal networking dinner on Wednesday 13 February.
