Goldberg, Tsafrir – London Review of Education, 2017

Rogers, Lynne – London Review of Education, 2011
The training of teachers in upper secondary education varies considerably dependent on whether training is undertaken as a secondary school teacher or as a teacher within the Further Education (FE) system.
