Talent stories: how a college makes people more employable

Anthony Haynes writes: Every day this week in our ‘Talent stories’ series we’ve been linking to stories from the worlds of talent acquisition, talent management, and human capital.

The stories we’ve chosen are ones that we’ve found entertaining and think have implications for good practice.

In this, the final post in the series, we offer not one story, but two. Both come from the world of learning and development.

What makes Milwaukee employable

The first story is from Tom Vander Ark’s Getting smart blog (27 January). It reports how one college, the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), has grasped the issue of graduate employability seriously.

It recounts the steps that MSOE has taken — in terms of active learning, relevant learning, and working retention – to ensure a high employment rate amongst its graduates.

What the Duke of Edinburgh does for college students

The second story comes from FE News (30 January). Peter Westgarth describes how a charity — the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award — helps to develop young people and make them more employable. He describes too the contribution this can make to the young people’s colleges.
