This is one in a series of case studies to enhance graduate employability. The theme of this case study is:

• Private higher education and employability implications

Private institutions are organisations that are not publically funded through the federal government. They are unique in terms of graduate employability as without subsidies, the quality of the education provided by these institutions, the confidence of employers in the product and the connection between educators and employers is paramount. The sustainability of these private institutions relies heavily on quality graduates outcomes, thus feedback and involvement from stakeholders is crucial in helping create these employability strategies and keeping them viable.
