Abstract

The legislative measures and curriculum initiatives taken by the Government in recent years affecting further education colleges have had profound implications for the organisation of institutions and the roles that staff must now play within them. This article attempts to assess the impact on the character and mode of provision, and the quality of learner experience, in the new 'flexible' college. It asks whether the Government's measures will achieve the goal of providing the highly educated, flexible labour force necessary for restoring economic competitiveness.
