This fascinating guide provides an overview of three key policy initiatives in FE - Success for All, Skills for Life and the new qualifications framework. For each initiative, Yvonne Hillier discusses the implications for implementing policy within particular institutions, and how change and working with staff can be managed to best achieve the intended aims of each policy. As all these initiatives are fast changing, an important theme throughout the book is the need to keep up-to-date. It is an essential reading for every manager in FE.
Yvonne Hillier is Professor in Post-compulsory Education at City University, London, UK. She has written extensively on post-compulsory education, including the best-selling 'Reflective Teaching in Further and Adult Education' for Continuum.
