The times they are a-changing: some thoughts on the historical and contemporary tensions in Initial Teacher Education for the lifelong learning sector in the UK at this pivotal moment in time
Kidd, W. 2013. The times they are a-changing: some thoughts on the historical and contemporary tensions in Initial Teacher Education for the lifelong learning sector in the UK at this pivotal moment in time. Research in Teacher Education. 3 (2), pp. 15-21.
This argument will explore the tensions and ambiguities for Initial Teacher Education (ITE) situated within the lifelong learning or further education (FE) context in the UK. In doing so the discussion will focus upon the structural and policy context (macro) which shapes the lived experience of teachers, trainee teachers and teacher educators (micro) in the FE system and how these policy narratives are ‘worked out’ in the day-to-day pedagogic practice of teacher education and within placement institutions (meso).
