The paper focuses on two groups of educational consumers: mature age universisty bridging students, and occupational Travellers. Drawing on Campion's (1997) notion of de-differentiation and Giroux's (1990) concept of border crossing, we argue that the generic skills approach to lifelong learning is potentially antithetical to these learners' specialised educational needs.
