Pedagogic Leadership in Post-Compulsory Education: Does it Exist?

Keynote by Denis Gleeson, Emeritus Professor of Education

 

Synopsis
Denis Gleeson is Emeritus Professor of Education at the University of Warwick. He has long standing interests in the sociology of vocational education and training with reference to wider aspects of pedagogy, policy and practice. His recent work focuses on leadership as a professionally based activity that is enhanced, as well as restricted, by current policies and practices in the field. While professional  programmes for training teachers and leaders have a vital role to play, their impact is being restricted by a combination of  halting demand-driven and market-led reforms, that generate uncertainty among college, school, community, employers and private providers. Such fragmentation is not new and raises the recurring question regarding democratic governance in the VET arena, and how changing conditions, partnerships and networks generate new and innovative professional, learning and leadership practices? Despite the continuation of the 'neo-liberal turn', VET policy, research and practice in England and Wales remains  a rich, innovative and dynamic field of education and employment policy.
