This publication is a handbook on Employability for Scottish academics. It has been designed to benefit all those in higher education institutions (HEIs) in Scotland who are concerned with curriculum design and implementation, including those who design student activities and assessments at module level. It is aimed at frontline academics rather than policy-makers.

This handbook provides: a signpost to the most relevant tools and material available from the Higher Education Academy web pages and other resources; a signpost to what is available for the intended audience from the Employability Enhancement Theme website; a sample of how subject-specific knowledge and practice, which academics have agreed form core competences in their subject area - QAA subject benchmark statements - relate to graduates' lifelong employability prospects; and examples of how employability-related subject-specific skills align themselves with the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at various levels (from SCQF 7 to 10).
