Main topic: "Bridging the skills gap: Preparing international students for their future careers" In a world that is faced with rapidly evolving technologies and innovations, it is crucial for education providers to equip their international students with the skills demanded by their future employers. In the main topic of this month’s ICEF podcast, we will discuss the so-called ‘skills gap’, with data, statistics and examples, and shed light on various options for education providers and student recruitment professionals, to help their students bridge this skills gap and enhance their employability and career opportunities. Think of micro-credentials, interdisciplinary programs, internships, and experiential learning as tools for students to gain practical experiences that prepare them for the workforce.
