Hanley, Pam; Orr, Kevin – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
England's further education (FE) sector has been characterised by instability and policy churn for at least three decades during which time reform of vocational education and training (VET) has been piled on top of reform, with few resulting in lasting change. In the context of another ambitious new reform of VET in England, this article reports…

James, David – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
In the context of devolution, this paper argues that there is a distinctively Welsh flavour to FE and Skills policy, but that its nature and formation needs to be understood both intrinsically and relationally, especially in terms of its relationship to parallel policy developments in England. Consideration is given to structural aspects and…

Hodgson, Ann; Spours, Ken; Gallacher, Jim; Irwin, Tracy; James, David – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
This article builds on the previous articles in this special issue to explore two related concepts -- a 'UK policy laboratory' and 'expansive policy learning', with a specific focus on further education (FE) and skills. We argue that the potential for a UK policy laboratory in this area is based primarily on a new balance between the forces of…

Hodgson, Ann; Spours, Ken – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
During the 25 years since Incorporation, when further education (FE) colleges were taken out of local government control, FE in England has been shaped by processes of marketisation to become a competitive national sector that has increasingly diverged from the more 'collaborative system logic' of the other three countries of the UK. However,…

Payne, Jonathan – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
A central challenge for local skills strategies is whether they can contribute to 'inclusive growth' including more and better jobs across a local economy. Skills strategies, it has been argued, must go beyond simply boosting skills supply and be integrated with policies that shape employer demand for, and utilisation of, skills, including…

Maguire, Sue – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
This paper explores what it means to be defined as NEET and economically inactive (EI). It draws on research conducted in England in 2016 and 2017 to examine the lives of young women who carry this label. While the term 'NEET' has been extended in recent years to cover a much wider age cohort of young people across the UK (and internationally),…

McGurk, Patrick; Meredith, Richard – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
This paper investigates the responsibilities and membership of Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) in England in the light of devolution of employment and skills responsibilities. Through the theoretical lens of 'hollowing out' and a direct comparison with the late-Thatcherite Training and Enterprise Councils (TECs) of the 1990s, the paper argues…

Fuller, Alison; Halford, Susan; Lyle, Kate; Taylor, Rebecca; Teglborg, Anne-Charlotte – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
Innovation occupies a pivotal place in our understanding of knowledge-based economies, and this is raising questions about sources of innovation, how it originates, and the role played by employees, work practices and learning. This paper explores these issues through case study research into a new approach to providing healthcare for homeless…

Karyda, Magdalene; Jenkins, Andrew – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
There is a growing interest among researchers in the impact of locality on young people who are inactive and not engaged in education, employment or training (NEETs). Previous research on this, however, is rather limited and does not account for a number of characteristics that mediate the effects of disadvantaged neighbourhoods on transition…

Wilde, Rachel J.; Leonard, Pauline – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
'Enterprise' has increasingly become part of the United Kingdom's political grammar and efforts to develop entrepreneurial traits and activities in young people have been a key strand of this policy focus. As the 2008 economic recession saw a curtailed youth labour market, enterprise emerged as an appealing policy 'solution' to youth unemployment.…

Fleckenstein, Timo; Lee, Soohyun Christine – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
Since the mid-1990s, governments of different political persuasion have tried to reform VET policy to address problems in skills formation and social inclusion. Despite considerable policy activism, success has been somewhat limited, and England failed to overcome the problems associated with its liberal training regime. This article¬†assesses the…
