"In Australia in the early 1990sâ€”and throughout the worldâ€”generic employability skills were identified as crucial attributes to enable successful participation in the labour market. In 1992 with the publication of the Mayer report, the first wave of these employability skillsâ€”called key competencies by Mayerâ€”appeared on the Australian education landscape. These key competencies and their successor, employability skills, have become integral components of training packages within the VET sector.
Over the years, the effectiveness of generic employability skills has been the topic of much heated debate, with many commentators arguing that, they are being neglected in the training system.
This paper contributes to that discussion by offering some insights into how trainers understand generic employability competencies and how they approach the delivery and assessment of these skills."
