Hodgson, Ann; Spours, Ken; Smith, David; Jeanes, Julia – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Education providers and employers working together to prepare young people and adults for employment is internationally accepted as a key factor in effective technical and vocational education.

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…

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…

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.

White, Michael; Knight, Genevieve – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
In-work training is generally regarded as beneficial for employees and in Britain it continues to offer significant gains in earnings.

Employers need to retain trained employees in order to make training cost-effective, but…
