frameworks for research and development

Abstract

There is no agreement across the further education sector about the purposes of colleges or the values that underpin their work. There is no benchmark qualification for students on either entry or exit that could be used to measure value added. In this paper, researchers from further and higher education discuss the nature of frameworks that shape the work of colleges. They offer a 'continua chart' that can be used to analyse the various conflicting frameworks. They suggest changes to the dominant FEFC framework that would be likely to lead to improving college
effectiveness.
