$47.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

This paper considers a particular case of corporate involvement in education by tracing an employability skills profile from its development in Canada by a corporate sponsored group to its local implementation, and finally its adoption as part of the educational policy discourse of the Alberta government. The purpose is to consider how hegemonic work has been accomplished by revealing the processes and strategies adopted by business leaders, but also to critique the discourse of employability skills by indicating what is left out or obscured.
