 Recruitment of professional staff. Few people understand how colleges and universities select students and deliver science-based qualifications and what an employer can realistically expect from a graduate. What literacy and numeracy skills can you expect from an employee with Functional or Essential Skills? Are scientific and technological knowledge and skills important in a particular post? What about an On Line, time-limited, objective assessment to screen out the technically less qualified?
