International Journal of Applied HRM (ISSN: 1742-2604) Volume 2 Issue 3

Miss. Helen Tranter


The teaching profession working in further education has undergone many changes since the 1992 Further and Higher Education Act (FHE), the incorporation of many colleges and the creation of sixth form colleges. The teachers involved in this study reported that certain key factors had influenced a reformation and redefinition of the teaching profession within Further Education.

The study goes on to discuss how this change process has affected the teaching profession in this area and how teachers have reacted to the changes. Some suggestions are made as to how the changes can be used to support the teaching profession in finding a higher level of status than it held before the change process started and what steps might be taken to ensure further change has a more positive affect on individual teaching staff.
