Abstract

Further Education (FE) is an umbrella term that describes learning taking place mainly outside of school environments and largely shaped by historical, industrial and social factors closely related to the local socio-economic circumstances in different towns and cities across the UK. This chapter presents findings from a collaborative research project into how, against a challenging landscape constrained by the pressures of marketisation and funding, further education continues to offer a ‘differential space’ (Lefebvre 1991) in which learners, supported by critical pedagogy, are able to experience education as transformative (Mezirow 2000; Duckworth & Ade-Ojo 2016; Duckworth & Smith 2017, 2018).
