Abstract


Quality of education is a multidimensional concept encompassing institutional, teaching and student outcome variables. Effective student transition to labor market as a student outcome owes due importance especially at the higher educational level. This is attainable when quality and strategies in higher education are designed to develop student employability skills and in accordance with the demands of labor market. Therefore, this study investigates the role of career education expert/advisor in improving various aspects of teacher quality with the supposition that student employability skills primarily depend upon the services of education expert but mainly through teaching techniques. Data was collected by the in-depth interviews from the selected teachers of National University of Sciences and Technology and Federal Urdu University, Islamabad. Findings both support and challenge this study’s proposed paradigm and offer insight into the multiple roles of education expert/advisor in the universities. Conclusion and suggestions have been made accordingly.
