Abstract

This paper focuses on the liberal and general studies (LGS) movement in the English further education sector, and uses Bernstein's work on pedagaogic discourses to argue that, at least in some cases,LGS provided vocational learners to forms of 'powerful knowledge' which are increasingly squeezed out of FE today.
