In this roundtable, we will question the role and function of personalisation and/or professional competence frameworks in supporting and guiding the development of student employability. Of particular interest will be what this means when it comes to the dominant(?) approach to work in this area within business schools and the related outcomes. The roundtable is formed around the following organising questions:

Question 1: To what extent is the dominant approach to employability within business schools the acquisition of knowledge and skills rather than a focus on professional behaviours.

Question 2: What contributes to successful personalisation of the student experience and do, or how may, professional body competence frameworks contribute to this?

Question 3: What insights can we develop and share regarding the links between employability (education) and the personalisation of higher education and what might (a) new approach(es) look like?
