Mapping the FE Sector.
Further Education Development Agency, London (England).
Between February and July 1995, Great Britain's further education (FE) sector was examined to gather information for use in making policy decisions regarding FE. The major phases of the project were as follows: development of an occupational map by research and interviews with individuals involved in administering and delivering FE services; development of a functional map based on information gathered during project team meetings, steering group and regional practitioner workshops, and feedback from sector organizations/colleges; and coordination of the functional map with existing national standards by identification and collation of existing standards to identify gaps. The resultant occupational map included information about the following aspects of the FE sector: jobs/job titles; the FE sector as a part of Great Britain's labor market; employment in the subsectors of FE; qualifications and staff development; initial teacher training, other inservice qualifications; support staff; other staff development; numbers of qualified staff; FE in Scotland; adult education, and trends/changes in the sector. Included in the functional map was information about values in the FE sectors, the functions of the key areas of FE, and overlaps or connections with other sectors. (Appended is information about the project objectives and methodology and the FE sector's size and scope.) (MN)
