The Link Between Education and Employment

There has been a challenge year after year for the academe to raise the bar for the 'employability' of their graduates. There has been much attempt to unravel the mysterious linkage between education and employment.

Some say this is because of the global recession, in part, because there is a re-thinking about the structure of curricular offerings in the developed higher education systems, and a re-examination of the same in the developing world, driven by the tremendous pressure created by high rates of unemployment of graduates throughout the world. These pressures are caused by different factors, however, the fact remains that educators mus squarely face the new realities of the job marketplace.

“The attention of education policy-makers and the international education community is moving away from raising literacy levels and increasing access to secondary and higher education, towards skills required by the workforce to promote economic growth.” says an article from University World News.

Higher education experts say that universities are coming under increasing pressure to ensure that their graduates are 'employable', although preparation for 'employability' is still only rarely incorporated in university courses.

“There is growing awareness of the need to link education to employment,” said Nicholas Burnett, managing director of the Results for Development Institute in Washington, DC, and a former assistant director general for education at UNESCO where he was head of the Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report.

The new linkages between industry and universities and a recovery in students undertaking practical work-based internships, have spurred discussions on how the academe is training their students for the 'real world'.
