Originally published in 1987. This book examines the growth of pastoral care and the pastoral curriculum, and innovations in vocational education in schools. These two major developments are considered in relation to the guidance and counselling movement whose impact on education over the preceding twenty-five years was considerable. The concept of person-centred learning grew out of this movement and with it many of the liberalising changes in education. This is a fascinating look at this area from a time when the whole nature and direction of schooling in the UK was about to change.
