Jones, Ken – Journal of Education Policy, 2010
Responding to the recent work of Andrew Gamble, the article discusses the extent to which the British situation can be described in terms of crisis.

Allen, Martin – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2015
Vocational education is supposed to improve work and employment skills, but many of the vocational courses developed in schools and colleges after the collapse of industrial apprenticeships in the 1970s have not offered real opportunities for young people in the labour market.

Ravenhall, Mark – Adults Learning, 2011
During the affluent noughties it was sometimes said of government that it had "more visions than Mystic Meg and more pilots than British Airways". In 2011, the pilots, the pathfinders, the new initiatives are largely gone--implementation is the name of the game--but the visions remain. The latest one, as it affects adult learners, is in…

Daniel, John – Open Learning, 2012
In the title the author asked whether dual-mode institutions were a stable "final" model for higher education or a step on the way to something else.

In the twenty-first century, communication has become truly global.

As a philosophy and religious studies high school teacher in the United Kingdom, Tom Bennett discovered that a good deal of what was considered orthodoxy in the profession was unsubstantiated.
