Sample text

Equally wellillustrated is both the distrust and lack of confidence in FE lecturers held by those same people. For instance, the independent enquirer must support conclusions using reasoned arguments and evidence while the creative thinker must ask questions to extend their thinking. It would appear that the award of a good grade will no longer be indicative of a student working well and the lecturer recognizing this, but that student and lecturer need reminding of what underpins good teaching and learning.

Once the values are in place, a further string of outcomes will determine behaviour. Students will ‘play a full part in the life of their college or wider community’; ‘take responsibility showing confidence in themselves’; ‘adapt behaviour to suit different roles’; and ‘identify improvements that would benefit others’. While any or all of these statements might make sense at times in certain situations in the workplace they are, by and large, entirely contrived, artificial and meaningless in the classroom and within the context of learning.

And so to the ‘third way’, in which no return to the welfare consensus seems possible, and the market mechanisms are equally unacceptable. Often represented as a positive period in which creativity can be unleashed and we can experiment with new ideas, the reality is the opposite. The new freedom is not a happy thing but leads to uncertainty and constant change. We have already seen how the new epistemology and ethics of FE professionalism is based on ‘uncertainty’ as a ‘positive’ value. Policy-making becomes arbitrary because policies are not aimed at any stable or traditional communities.
