The limits of higher education institutions as sites of work skill development

Cite Embed

Where do workers with Higher Education (HE) degrees develop their work skills? Although few would expect these to be developed in HE exclusively, there exists an assumption that the core skills of those working in graduate occupations are predominantly formed at HE. Gerbrand Tholen examines how within four graduate occupations, employers and workers assess the extent HE is thought to develop the skills and knowledge used within the work process. Gerbrand Tholen is a senior lecturer in Sociology. His research interests are centred around education, skills, jobs, occupations and the labour market.
