You correctly reported that "many academics see the government stress on employabil-ity as invasive of higher education values and driving good learning out" ("Key-skills drive may put study in the shade", THES , July 26). Colleagues might have inferred that the Skills Plus project shared the view that policies to enhance student employability threaten good learning. On the contrary, the project maintains that employability is enhanced by good learning. The complex achievements employers value also sit well with good learning in higher education.
