Seminar Two: Invisible or hidden? Challenging discourses around ‘skills deficit’
University of East Anglia, 6 May 2015
Exploring dominant policy discourses around skills development and training programs in international education and development. How are these discourses constructed from a perceived deficit of vocational education and training opportunities?
This BAICE Thematic Forum aims to deepen understanding around how deficit discourses have shaped the questions and objections of international educational research. The seminars are intended to explore and challenge dominant deficit discourses that have shaped the way researchers/policy makers look at specific groups in development and thematic policy areas.
