Abstract

This paper discusses the relationship between secondary schools and life-long learning as provided by Further Education (FE) colleges in the UK. It argues that this relationship is often problematic, both as a result of prevailing market ideology and of historically-grounded discourses about the relative status of the two sectors. The paper questions the notion that learners transferring to FE a t 16 are exercising a real 'choice'; but also draws attention to evidence that significant numbers of them nevertheless find FE a more engaging and rewarding experience than school.
