VetSet2Go is a collaborative project to define the capabilities most important for employability and success in the veterinary profession, and create assessment tools and resources to build these capabilities.
Why employability? A focus on employability leads to a focus beyond initial employment and graduate competency towards sustained success in the profession, regardless of the context. We aim to achieve this by making the capabilities that contribute to employability more explicit in education, to help students better prepare for the challenges they may encounter in transition to practice.
This project will make a distinctive contribution to the rapidly‐evolving field of employability, hitherto unexplored in the veterinary context despite looming large as a pressing concern.
Our approach is to use the employability construct to provide greater clarity, priority and effective feedback on the veterinary graduate capabilities that most influence employment and professional success.
Phase 1 will synthesize a wide body of existing and commissioned research to inform an inaugural veterinary employability forum, and distil a veterinary employability framework solidly grounded in both evidence and multi‐stakeholder consensus.
Phase 2 will validate a multisource assessment approach that embeds and scaffolds these employability capabilities within formative feedback and assessment, particularly in work‐integrated learning (WiL). The VetSet2Go assessment tools and resources will be made available via this website.
There are five Subprojects.
