CIHE (now NCUB) contributed to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills report published in June 2011, which explores the development of employability skills in the UK and in an international setting.

Building on primary research, the report draws together selected best practice examples from the UK and international higher education institutions. This includes highlighting the UK’s strengths in central support as well as international examples of integrating employability skills directly into the curriculum as part of the “Melbourne model”.
