Summary "Further Education has reached a crossroads, with questions being asked about its function, aims and focus. Identity and Resistance in Further Education explores these questions and effectively conveys the sense of uncertainty that those in the field are experiencing today. Connecting HE and FE practitioners and researchers, the book gathers a collection of essays that draw on a wide range of theoretical, as well as literary, perspectives in order to offer some answers. Problematising relationships between the teacher and the institution and the teacher and government, the book argues the profound challenge to teachers' values and identities finds its response in a critical collegiality"-- Provided by publisher
