[en] The SQALES (Students' Quality of Life and Employability Skills) project aims to help universities adopt the recommendations from Bergen (Communiqué 2005) within the framework of the Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area (EHEA, Communiqué Louvain & European Council, 2009). Under the European Council declaration of 1999, universities have become subject to assessment in terms of productivity and competitiveness.
Against that background, we aim to help universities:
Create a tool for assessing employability skills (ES) and addressing the requirements of the Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area (EHEA, European Council, 2009)
Create an evaluation device with which to establish benchmarks
Facilitate a dialogue between all those involved in order to meet students’ needs
Adopt new activities and make use of new resources
Compare themselves with other European universities
The objectives of Sqales are to:
- Describe Employability skills, WHOQoL domains and socio-demographic characteristics
Analyse the links between employability skills and other variables
Identify students' feelings about their faculties using a range of scores
