First published in 1972, this second edition of Further Education in England and Wales was written to provide a comprehensive account of the character and extent of further education in England and Wales.
The book critically analyses the major features of further education at the time of publication, and suggests ways in which it might profitably develop in the years ahead. It provides an important account of the post-war historical background to further education, and examines in detail topics such as the role of polytechnics and the work of the Council for National Academic Awards; the educational implications of the Industrial Training Act; developments in education for business and management; and, the changing pattern of education for art and design. The book also considers the training of teachers for further education, and further education in Wales.
