Enhancing Employability: Do we really know what we are doing? Call for presenters

call for papers has been launched for a research seminar being run Our Direction by Brian Talbot CC BY-NCcollaboratively between Newcastle Business School and the Department of Psychology on 23rd June, 2016 from 1400-1600, in CCE1-221.

The seminar will examine development in the conceptualisation and theorisation of employability through empirical research across the career stages: from early through to later-career.

Interested colleagues from across Northumbria’s 4 faculties are invited to present empirical or theoretical research in the field of employability and to pose challenging questions to engage delegates in dialogue to question the established orthodoxy of employability as the acquisition and possession of capabilities which can be transferred directly into employment.
