about

Teachers from further and higher education are rarely considered together. This book explores the differences and similarities that exist between these groups. It provides an up-to-date account of developments and brings together arguments and debates about both groups of teachers to challenge some strongly held beliefs.

Focusing on aspects of teachers' professionalism, Jocelyn Robson considers what 'professionalism' may mean and ways in which 'professionalism' has been studied. She goes on to consider:

  • professional standards, training and qualifications
  • professional identities and communities
  • opportunities and strategies for professional development and renewal
  • key debates in the literature and the most significant policy developments
  • the main challenges currently facing the teaching profession in further and higher education.

Editorial Reviews

'Given the blurring of boundaries in England between further and higher education, Jocelyn Robson's recent book on teacher professionalism in FE and HE is a welcome contribution to the literature on what it means to be professional and how the nature of working in these post-compulsory sectors has created a series of challenges.' - Higher Education Review
