Avis, James and Bathmaker, Ann-Marie (2004) Coping and caring: the development of professional identity amongst FE trainee lecturers. In: Annual Conference of the British Educational Research Association 2004, September 2004, UMIST, Manchester. (Unpublished)

This paper explores conceptualisations of teaching and learning amongst lecturers training to teach in further education. The paper is based on a small-scale study involving interviews with trainee lecturers at a university in the English Midlands. The trainees' discussions of their own educational biography, their move into FE teaching, and their perceptions of working in FE are examined as a means of gaining insight into their emerging identities as FE lecturers. The possibilities and limitations for democratic and critical forms of professionalism are considered.
