Hyland, Terry – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2019

It is argued that specialised forms of knowledge and practice require recognition and differentiation in ways that many contemporary approaches to practice theory deny. Drawing on Hager's interpretation of MacIntyre, it is suggested that…

The example of jobs in childcare and pre-primary education shows that the legacy of semi-professionalism in these…

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.
