Further education in the UK is a rapidly changing and expanding sector, central to government educational policy. Post-Compulsory Education and the New Millennium seeks to provide an up-to-date overview of the post-compulsory sector of education and analyse the current trends and policies likely to affect both teachers and teacher trainers.
The contributors have established national and international reputations in the post-16 education field and provide analytical and critical accounts of:
Further education under New Labour
National Vocational Qualifications
New qualifications and Patterns of Assessment
Teacher education and staff development
Management and funding of further and higher education
The book also includes an Anglo-German comparison of vocational education and transitions in employment and concludes by considering future perspectives on post-compulsory education.
