“Further Education Teacher Educators Project (FETEP): the journeys, pathways, qualifications, professional identities and some statistics

John Bostock, Heather Booth-Martin

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This project considers some preliminary findings from one of the research methods – questionnaire survey - the routes to becoming a teacher educator, the knowledge that is drawn upon in this role and the ways in which teacher educators view themselves. Using a democratic, collaborative and inclusive approach to research, a variety of research methods – questionnaire, interviews and ‘Talking Heads’ - are adopted including the use of ‘buddy researchers’. Drawing on concepts of situated learning and recontextualisation, the project seeks to identify the knowledge utilised by teacher educators and the extent to which they view themselves as professionals.
