Graduate capabilities are the skills and knowledge necessary to demonstrate confidence, competence and innovation in their specific profession and across disciplines.
At ICMS, our 21st Century Graduate Capabilities are the skills that every student needs to have developed by the time they graduate. These capabilities (skills) are what employers ask for.
Graduate capabilities enhance employment opportunities and lead to success in work and life!
Employers have strong and growing expectations that graduates will be work ready and productive. In turn, employees expect to have their skills and capabilities recognised and rewarded with ongoing opportunities for career and personal development. Individuals will need to be able to manage multiple career transitions, and to build their own career paths and business opportunities, through continuous learning and development. Many professions are also refocusing their requirements for professional entry and ongoing accreditation on a broad range of aptitudes and capabilities; their perspective is broadening from the familiar focus on technical and occupational proficiency.
