Publication year: 

This paper begins with a brief overview of the
emergence of employability as a construct. It
proceeds with a critique of several key themes
implicated in the discourse and present in the
literature. Next, a brief, bridging introduction to an
expanded notion of employability is given, followed
by a summary overview of some of the central
contestations and challenges pervading the literature on FET colleges and universities. Structuring the
discussion in this way prepares an analytic space for
an expanded concept of holistic competence and
capability as implicated in curriculum responsiveness
and employability.
