dc.description.abstractThe term employability has become a common name amongst educators, researchers, and employers. It refers to the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to look for work and continue successfully in a career. Employability has been a challenge for graduates of Nigerian higher education institutions (HEIs) due to their failure to meet the current labour market expectations. Current Nigerian graduates have consistently not acquired the skills needed for success in the workplace to learn and thrive continuously in rapidly changing world. HEIs have been blamed for producing graduates who fail to meet employment demands in the labour market. Several distortions in the higher education systems are responsible for youth not being able to obtain and keep employment. Failures to collaborate are obvious as employers continue to voice concern that the curriculum and standard teaching methods are not generating the graduates and future leaders they desire to hire. Employers are more satisfied with graduates who possess core skills, such as creative and critical thinking, interpersonal, and leadership’s skills, that will help graduates to identify and analyse complex phenomena, evaluate and converge new ideas. Problem solving, communication, and life-long learning are now the basic requirements to compete and be successful. Collaboration and reflection will be a transformation of the relations between the students and the teaching staff and students are required to make decisions about how to complete a task. Future employers, institutions and students must collaborate to ensure graduates have the needed skills for employability and success. Thus, the interactive session will focus on what should be the specific innovations, programmes and approaches to improve the graduate employability in Nigeria.//Paper ID 27en_US
