The Labour Market Intelligence Partnership (LMIP) hosted a policy round table on how TVET providers develop intermediate skills to strengthen employability and employment prospects of students? The issue of employability lies at the heart of debates around skills and human resources development. It is a recurring policy concern that significant numbers of graduates at all levels of the system are not able to find employment, despite successfully completing their training. Employers, through representative structures or as individual entities, regularly complain that graduates are not work-ready or lack general skills such as communication or time management, while graduates maintain that employers expect unreasonable prior experience.
