What is Spotlight on Employability?

Organized together with Sayling Wen Cultural and Educational Foundation HundrED Spotlight on Employability Skills is a curated collection of 10 education innovations offering inspiring solutions to provide future life and career skills for students. Any Chinese speaking educator or innovator can submit their innovation to be researched and all submitted innovations undergo a thorough research process and screening by an expert advisory board. The ten selected applications adhere to a strict selection criteria of FIT+HUG, while being impactful, scalable and innovative. The deep insights gained through the Spotlight are then shared with the world in the form of a report and videos.

The HundrED Spotlight is co-organized together with the Sayling Wen Cultural and Educational Foundation to start their NXTEducator program on the theme of employability.

How are projects selected?

Research is being made by adapting the FIT+HUG criteria by the Sayling Wen Cultural and Educational Foundation and the three criteria by HundrED of innovativeness, impact, and scalability.

Based on these factors, alongside qualitative evidence from interviews with the research teams, innovations are given an overall score. Innovations are scored twice, first based on their current state and then based on their potential. To determine how well submissions fit the criteria, the following descriptive factors will be used:

HundrED Criteria


Innovativeness: Valuable improvement within the context

Impact: Established for at least a year with demonstrable evidence

Scalability: Adaptable in new environments with a commitment to scale

FIT+HUG Criteria


Friendly by Nature: Innovation encourages students to be friendly not only at work, but also exhibit sincerity and goodwill in all interaction with people, matters and things

Innovative with Diversity: Innovation encourages students to integrate different cultural influences, and are accustomed to formulating solutions from multiple perspectives

Technology Aware: Innovation encourages students to be willing to accept technological trends and new knowledge, and seeks to utilise them

Human-Centric Approach: Innovation encourages students to be empathetic and take initiative to understand customers’ needs, and design or provide customer-centric services in a timely manner as well as effectively solve problems and meet customers needs

Uniting multiple domains: Innovation encourages students to understand the cultural and professional values of different domains, lead teams from different disciplines to have discussions and dialogues and jointly create the best solution for achieving goals

Global view with local act: Innovation encourages students to appropriately use global knowledge and experience to design solutions that are suitable and capable of enhancing the value and quality of local industries
