For all those teaching or training to teach within the Further Education (FE) sector, this book provides a critical understanding of the complex concept of inclusion and its implementation in a range of different contextual settings. It encourages the reader to revisit their own beliefs and assumptions concerning inclusion in relation to their own practice, and a range of learning features including clear objectives, case studies, critical thinking tasks and chapter reflections ensures deep understanding. The increasing importance of inclusion, and the growing provision of Higher Education courses in FE, means that an accessible book which facilitates a critical understanding of inclusion policy and develops relevant academic competence is both timely and essential.
