Cultivating higher vocational students' employability is one of the most important goals for higher vocational education. Many researchers address teachers' key roles in cultivation of employability. However, the cultivation of employability relates to students' family environment and psychological capital. Through the collection of demographic data, 6700 higher vocational students were investigated with the Positive Psychological Capital Questionnaire (PPQ) and the College Students' Employability Questionnaire (CSEQ). The results show that psychological capital is significantly correlated with employability (P < 0.01); although family environment can not regulate the impact of psychological capital on employability, it works independently as psychological capital does; the self-efficacy, optimism and hope in psychological capital significantly affect the employability of higher vocational students from single-parent families. The improvement of psychological capital is conducive to the cultivation of employability of higher vocational students from single-parent families.
Key words: Employability / Family environment / Psychological capital / Higher vocational students
