Higher Education and Employment: Opportunities and Limitations in the Formation of Skills in a Mass Higher Education System.
West, John
Journal of Vocational Education & Training: The Vocational Aspect of Education, v52 n4 p573-88 2000

Both the professions and discipline-based higher education are organized around and draw their distinctiveness from specific contexts. (SK)
