Work readiness – understanding the needs and experiences of health graduates in the workplace

Project: Other

Project Description

“Today, many young people enter university solely to prepare for their careers”. As a result, universities are focusing on improving graduate work readiness. Degrees that do not include mandatory work placements or set career pathways (e.g. health sciences) are particularly relevant. This study aims to look beyond employment rates and provide insight into whether we have equipped recent health and biomedical science graduates for their chosen careers. We will explore their needs, barriers and enablers of work readiness. Results from the study will inform the development and implementation of work ready programs for the Faculty’s non-vocational courses.
