Abstract

The paper explores the experiences of further education of Access and part-time (BTEC Business and Finance and A level sociology) students. It does so by locating this in the socio-economic context, and argues for an analysis that focuses upon the discursive positioning, cultural production and student identity as learners. It examines the similarities and differences in student orientations towards further education by considering vocationalism, academism, instrumentalism, motivation and identity.
