Crafting Employability for Language Graduates - Languages 4 Work (ERASMUS+ Project)
This two year (2015-2017) project aims to enhance language students’ employability by engaging them in work related activities and reflections as part of their academic studies to optimise their career opportunities after graduation. The AHECS employability module consisting of eight workshops will be adapted by each of the partners. The final materials will be disseminated in Dublin Autumn 2017.
AHECS is one of nine European partners in this project. The four AHECS member institutions participating in this project are Louise Nagle of ITTralee, Orlaith Tunney of Trinity College Dublin, Dave Kilmartin of Dublin Institute of Technology & Elaine Browne of University College Cork.
