Employers’ requirements for graduate skills, attributes and knowledge in the coastal and estuarine sector

Employers’ requirements for graduate skills, attributes and knowledge in the coastal and estuarine sector
Employers’ requirements for graduate skills, attributes and knowledge in the coastal and estuarine sector
1. Graduates normally have those skills that are most frequently expected by employers.
2. Attributes expected of graduates are mostly - but not always - met.
3. Knowledge needs are best met in areas that are most valued.
4. Areas for concern are not necessarily deliverable through a higher education (University) setting and the “standard” student experience.
5. Assessed placements are recommended as a means by which workplace skills and attributes might be developed within degree programmes in higher education, and thereby contribute to graduates better meeting the needs and expectations of employers.
