Students and Graduates - Crafting Employability Strategies for HE Students of Languages in Europe

‌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.

Employer Survey (open until May 2016)

Languages 4 Work survey (open until May 2016)

We at AHECS have partnered on a programme funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union which is focussed on supporting Language Graduates into successful careers.

This project is working with employers across Europe to seek their views on how HEIs can support students to be more employable in this regard.  We urge you to take this short survey which will enable you to input your views about the importance of language skills for graduates into this project.
