This subproject used focus groups and semi-structured interviews to explore the perspectives of matched pairs of graduates and employers, namely the key capabilities influencing success outcomes (employer satisfaction, graduate satisfaction / well-being, ease of transition) in the transition to practice.
This subproject used semi-structured interviews to explore how employers approach the selection of new graduate veterinarians for employment, namely the nuances and rationales behind employer perspectives, opinions and decision-making processes.
This subproject used longitudinal surveys and semi-structured interviews of early career veterinarians to develop psychometrically-sound conceptions, models and measures specific to veterinary medicine which researchers, educators and clinicians alike can use to understand professional motivation and resilience.
This subproject used focus groups and a large-scale survey to address the lack of data around what drives veterinary client satisfaction, particularly in the employability context (i.e. underpinning capabilities). This focus on client expectations represents the true ‘coalface’ of veterinary clinical work.
This subproject used an international quantitative survey and a Delphi process to explore the multi-stakeholder consensus around, and the relative importance of, the veterinary employability capabilities that were identified in the preceding subprojects.
