Abstract

The chapter aims to explore an ongoing approach towards enhancing student’ employability skills and building confidence. This approach draws on literature related to soft skills development and issues surrounding student confidence. It provides an innovative approach involving students, academic faculty and external organisations in a collaborative problem-solving activity known as ‘Innovation and Global Growth week’ (IGG).
The outcome of this week of events is realigned with the factual needs of participating businesses and aims at generating creative ideas and innovation in order to address challenges faced by the participating businesses.
This approach stimulates contextual skills and knowledge learning for students, faculty and the enterprises involved.
