Survey of Current Research in Further Education.
Cole, Hilda; Van Der Eyken, Willem
This guide to current research in Further Education (FE) provides the title of research projects in progress in the UK, the responsible or sponsoring institute, the composition of the research team, and, where possible, a description of the work. An introductory essay attempts to set this fragmented work in context. This is an invaluable compendium for those professionally and directly concerned in FE and for the growing number peripherally involved. The greatest recent growth in terms of increased student intake has been in the FE sector and the colleges of Further Education. FE colleges, as a result of policy, and because they are traditionally conceived to be teaching institutions, have not built up a body of research staff. Any study of FE which wishes to explain the system and what happens within it has to pay serious attention to the industrial component within the system. (Author/CK)
