This paper draws on the Further Education in England: Transforming Lives & Communities project commissioned by UCU. This research project aims to understand and provide evidence of how the further education (FE) sector is vital in transforming lives and communities in 21st century Britain. The study provides learners, teachers, family members and their communities with the opportunity to tell and share their stories, linking the distinctness of FE to the impact it has on individuals, society and the economy.
