Vrijdag 09 November 2018 15:00 - 16:00

Despite the increase in the number of graduates across the globe, their qualifications are unable to secure many of them jobs. This is partly because many employers are keen not only on the graduates’ academic achievement but also on other employability skills, capacities and competencies. This presentation explores the role of service-learning in enhancing students’ employability skills. In service-learning, students engage in voluntary community service activities with the aim of learning from the experience while providing service to help the recipients. A major conclusion is that service-learning has a positive influence on graduates’ employability skills. Please register
