Curriculum is a key issue for trainee teachers in the Lifelong Learning Sector and a core component of most courses. It lies at the heart of the work of teachers and trainers, it shapes the programmes and courses that are taught, and dicatates which stuents can have access to courses. What goes in to the curriculum is argued over by governments, emplyers, parents and educationalists. How the curriculum is funded can change on a yearly basis. Access to a particular curriculum can raise or diminish the life chances of the learners invovled. This book provides an accessibly and up to date overview of the key issues surrounding the curriculum. Written for all those working towards QTLS, it provides examples and case studies from working FE colleges, adult education centres and work-based learning contexts as well as offering succinct summaries of key theories and debates relating to the curriculum. This fully revised second edition reflects the latest policies and thinking, has a new chapter on the implications of e-learning on curricula, and includes a full gloasary of key terms and concepts.
