This book looks in detail at the strong contrasts in the provision traditionally made for 'academically' and 'vocationally' minded students, and looks at differences and similarities in practice. The chapters report evidence of how students on both sides think they have been taught. They also report on how those students prefer to learn, how their teachers define the kinds of learning appropriate for particular qualifications and how the organisation of learning for 'different but equal' qualifications was observed in forty schools and colleges. The book's main focus is on the objectives and processes of learning at a stage which is certainly being transformed, but which is still powerfully shaped by myths about the sixth form and education of 'leaders'.

This book makes an important contribution to understanding the political, social and educational impact of assessment. Using a multi-layered approach, it offers a fascinating case study of how post-16 assessment systems are designed and debated inside policy making processes. This case study highlights the broader tensions at the heart of assessment policy. The book also explores the complex factors that affect how teachers and students use formative assessment to achieve higher standards of educational attainment and more autonomous learning. Learning Autonomy in Post-16 Education is a comprehensive and authoritative account of policy and practice in post-16 assessment. The book weaves together new theoretical frameworks with evidence from empirical research to offer a detailed picture of the diverse factors affecting the quality of formative assessment in further education. The book will be of particular interest to teachers and practitioners across the post-16 sector on postgraduate and in-service professional development courses. It will also be of interest to researchers, inspectors and qualification designers.

Based around the new standards set out in Qualifying to Teach and the Fento standards, the book will help student- teachers address the different teaching strategies needed to teach post-sixteen students. The book will also appeal to practising teachers who are looking for a fresh perspective. Full of case studies and questions for reflection, this comprehensive textbook includes chapters on: sixteen to nineteen teaching contextualized effectiveness defined avoiding preconceptions sixteen to nineteen: planning for differentiation subject expertise assessment sixteen to nineteen active learning in the sixteen to nineteen classroom the importance of the tutor role in sixteen to nineteen teaching learning with colleagues: developing a career in sixteen to nineteen teaching.

Trainee college teachers are also given a route to meeting the FENTO standards.

Flexibility seems to be the core concept of economic and educational change in our time. The promise of solutions to many problems at the individual, institutional, and national level evokes as much controversy as acclaim. This might be related to the different perspectives of actors and researchers involved in problem-solving in Vocational Education and Training (VET), where, on the one hand, solutions should be sought in key qualifications and transferability, in changing teaching and learning processes, while, on the other, political, institutional, organisational, and professional conditions are seen as the key interventions to build a responsive workforce on the basis of a re-engineered VET system. Consequently, flexibility in connection with vocational education and training and the labour market has several divergent connotations. In this volume, we treat flexibility as a system characteristic of VET in analyzing key conditions for flexibility: - economic context of VET and the organisational and institutional design of VET; - educational tools and resources for the flexibility of delivery and pathways at national level; - VET professionals as promoters of flexibility, mobility, and transferability. Systemic flexibility is seen as a promising educational answer to hyper-innovation and changing economic conditions in the emerging knowledge-based economy. Individuals, local communities, and VET systems should be able to adapt effectively to changing conditions in society, work, and labour markets.
