this book was helpful to me in delivering courses for Employability. It helped me to look at individuals and their issues and problems as well as having activities that I can use in a course to keep myself fresh as well. A good read.

Good textbook for teachers introducing employability to students, lots of good ideas and materials. Not really suitable as the main reference for students in this area - but useful as supplementary reading.
