Abstract

The reform agenda for teacher training in the sector initiated by the government in 2004 followed a period of review. In 2001, for example, teachers working in the sector were required to have a teaching qualification, based on the Further Education National Training Organisation (FENTO) standards current at the time. This "early" attempt to raise professionalism within the sector gained impetus in 2002 when the government outlined its strategy to "transform" the learning and skills sector in England in "Success for All" (DfES 2002). The continuing need to "transform" and "reform" the sector has been driven by social and economic factors and as such, the strategy is part of a wider agenda of reform. This small study aims, through the collection and analysis of qualitative data, to capture the "student voice" relating to professionalism and professional standards at this early stage of implementation of workforce reform in the sector.
