Higher Education, Employability and Inclusive Development: Concerns from Ghana

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Despite expanding access to universities in Sub-Saharan Africa, there are widespread concerns about the quality and relevance of provision and subsequent effects on graduate employability. This paper reports initial findings from the first year of a British Council funded study of universities and employability in four universities in Ghana. In this phase of the research, the influence of university governance on teaching and learning quality is assessed, drawing on quantitative and in-depth qualitative studies in the four case institutions in Ghana. Using broader normative frame drawing in part on Amartya Sen’s capability approach, the paper highlights conceptions of employability from students, university staff and higher education policy makers perspectives. The paper concludes with hints for the second year of the study as well as the implications of findings for higher education policy in Ghana.
