Professional capabilities in non-vocational subject disciplines

This small-scale study within a single institution explored the relationship between retail employers’ wish that graduates exercise professionally relevant capabilities and a sample of curricula in non-vocational subjects.

The evidence from this study suggests that higher education and employers do not always share a commonality of understanding about the former’s efforts to develop graduates’ professional capabilities and that ‘translation’ between one milieu and the other could prove beneficial to both parties.
