Metaphors, markets and marks: the general qualifications market and its deregulation

This presentation will explore the metaphors used to describe general qualifications: their basis, meaning and the effect they might have in ‘the real world’.


This presentation will explore the metaphors used to describe general qualifications: their basis, meaning and the effect they might have in ‘the real world’. In particular, the notion of a ‘market place’ for qualifications will be analysed, including the supply and demand side factors, the impact and desirability of its deregulation, the risks and benefits inherent in such an approach, and how, and by how much, such a market should be regulated.
