R&D Grants


ACCELL is constructing the Australian Graduate Employability Scale (A-GRADES). We are grateful for Graduate Careers Australia funding the project as part of GCA’s Graduate Research Program.

The A-GRADES is as an omnibus measure of the multidimensional construct employability specific to the Australian higher education context. A-GRADES can be used by students, university personnel (e.g., career practitioners, work-integrated learning specialists), and researchers.

The first A-GRADES questionnaire is now closed. Round 2 will open in October for student and graduate participants and access will be available here online.


ACCELL’s PhD candidate Nicole McDonald is investigating the motivational factors for cotton’s workforce. This project is funded by Cotton Research & Development Corporation.
