In comparison with British schools and universities, little is known about what goes on in colleges of further education (tertiary colleges). This study* followed the learning journeys of 45 students and 27 teachers over a two year period. It recorded the various twists and turns of what went on day-to-day, as revealed from a range of data, some provided by the participants, others from first-hand observation. The purpose of doing this was to improve our understanding of learning processes in further education and to add to knowledge of the relationships between learners and teachers and to the sorts of learning outcomes this gave rise to.
