Abstract

This thesis examines the relationship which exists between the content of courses of study which lead to professional qualifications in Further Education Teaching and Youth Work and the relevance of that study to professional practices. Because of the changing nature of the work of Further Education colleges and Youth Work, brought about by the economic and social changes taking place in Britain in the 1970s, consideration is given to the possibility that elements of study or practice for one profession can be of use to practitioners of the other. An examination is also made of respondents' reactions to a variety of techniques regularly used by educationists and contrasts these replies with data about preferred forms of working. Two forms of questionnaire are used to collect data from Further Education Teachers, Youth Workers and Further Education Students while additional oral evidence obtained from a variety of respondents supplements the analysis of this data. The research findings are compared with published material about both professions and the techniques they use. Some recommendations for curriculum change are made.
