Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

At DkIT our careers research has shown that employability and graduate attributes go hand-in-hand together. Your graduate attributes are the core abilities and values your higher education institute community, including students and graduates, agrees all graduates should develop. They are also the abilities employers deem necessary for today’s knowledge workers and graduate success.

At DkIT our graduate attribute framework emphasises practical, collaboration, communication, and confidence skills as well as positive, adaptive and resilient mindsets. We advocate ‘ Graduates Bringing Practical Solutions to a Complex World ’ as ‘Communicators, Collaborators and Confident Changemakers ’.

Throughout this workbook you will be asked to engage with the PCs Graduate Attribute & Mindsets Framework via a suite of activities and exercises.
