Avis, James; Orr, Kevin; Warmington, Paul – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2017
Black and minority ethnic students (BME) are a significant constituency in vocational education and training (VET) and FE in England.

Bailey, Gillian; Colley, Helen – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2015
Since incorporation of further education (FE) in England in 1992, much research has critiqued the performative pressures on FE teachers created by a managerialist audit culture.

The British further education (FE) sector has experienced almost continual restructuring as it adapts to simultaneously meet the evolving needs of industry and to tackle social injustice.

This article is the first study investigating New Zealand's early legislation in apprenticeship from the perspective of historical institutionalism. It shows that, between 1865 and the 1940s, New Zealand's apprenticeship system was less liberal in character than it is today, because a collective skill formation regime, involving dual training, was…
