The Professional Learning of Further Education Lecturers: Effects of Initial Lecturer Education Programmes on Continuing Professional Learning in Scotland and Wales
Husband, Gary
Research in Post-Compulsory Education, v23 n2 p159-180 2018
This paper reports on the results of a research study conducted in two colleges of further education in Scotland and Wales. The aim of the study was to begin to understand the ongoing effects of initial lecturer education programmes. Using the accounts of respondent lecturers and detailed documentary analysis, an accurate picture of the professional learning provision in the two colleges and devolved sectors was constructed. The research found that induction practices, mentor support, model of initial lecturer education programmes and engagement with practice focused work-based learning all had significant impact on ongoing engagement with professional learning. The paper concludes with suggestions for practice related to the structuring of professional learning from induction to continuous career-long provision.
