Morrison, Andrew – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
This article applies Paul Gomberg's theory of contributive justice to the problematic of working-class graduates' access to skilled and meaningful work in the UK. I begin by outlining Gomberg's argument for the importance of quality work as a key social good. I then draw upon a range of sociologically-informed literature to offer a two-fold…

Livingstone, D. W. – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
'Employers know that they can hire worldwide now … so, there is limitless supply of people … who can do the job … . they're all qualified, most of them are actually over-qualified … . I'm a wage slave basically, I don't think we have very much social status … . we are replaceable workers … I mean, the employer holds all the cards really. We are…

Bohlinger, Sandra – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Launched in 2008 as a 'Common Reference Framework' including eight levels of learning and three descriptors that aimed at providing a 'translation grid' between national qualifications, the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) aims at numerous educational reforms such as promoting the learning outcomes orientation, transparency of…

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…

Gallacher, Jim; Reeve, Fiona – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
This article considers the implications of a 'managed' approach to skills policy in Scotland, in which Government policy and the role of national institutional frameworks can be seen to be influential, and which contrasts with the more marketised approach which has been a central aspect of policy in England. A number of themes within these…

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,…

Guile, David; Wilde, Rachel J. – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
Moulier Boutang's book "Cognitive Capitalism" introduces a radically different conception of the key resources -- 'immaterial labour' and 'capture of externalities' -- for economic activity, compared with the argument in the knowledge economy discourse that professionals manipulate 'symbols'. The paper explores this claim by firstly,…

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…

López-Guereñu, Nuria – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
The contrasting conceptions of policy borrowing and policy learning processes in relation to education and skills have been widely debated. Nevertheless, most analyses have focused on nation states and, subsequently, cases of sub-sections of a state have been insufficiently considered. This article examines the process of modernisation of the…

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…

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…

Ageing populations and accelerating economic change make it increasingly important to update the skill levels of populations over the whole life course.

Pilcher, Nick; Fernie, Scott; Smith, Karen – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
National Qualifications Frameworks (NQFs) are a global phenomenon. This is evidenced by their scale, coverage and intrinsic link with education policy across Europe and beyond. Research into their impact has encompassed a number of perspectives; theoretical, practical and evaluative. Yet, despite the existence of critical literature related to the…
