Abstract :
[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 de 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
