Australian Office for Learning and Teaching Senior National Teaching Fellow Dawn Bennett has developed a self-assessment tool with which students can create a personalised employABILITY profile. This forms part of a brand new Student Employability Starter Kit. Dawn’s Literacies for Life model, grounded in social cognitive theory, underpins the kit.

The self-assessment tool and other the resources at the website are free on the basis that employABILITY, as Dawn calls it, needs to be formative and accessible to all students. Educators can request an anonymised, cohort-wide profile summary as well as assistance with the workshop and reflection processes.

The educator site hosts multiple employability development resources for use with students, and the tool is research-enabled for colleagues who wish to analyse the aggregated findings.
