      Abstract

      This submission contains eight papers and a synoptic commentary to be examined for the
      award of PhD on the Basis of Published Work. The papers focus upon the further education
      (FE) system in England. Each examines significant contemporary or historical issues and
      provides a critical analysis of the changing nature of FE. Collectively, the publications
      constitute an original and significant contribution to understanding further education and the
      social and economic context within which it is placed. The commentary highlights the links
      between the different papers and demonstrates their coherence; it locates the publications
      within an overarching analytical framework; and it shows how the work submitted makes a
      significant contribution to knowledge. It also explains my contribution to the three coauthored
      papers that constitute part of this thesis. It is argued that, taken together, my work
      provides a sustained and consistent critique of the English further education system from a
      critical materialist perspective.
