There is a dearth of research on teacher educators in the post compulsory/lifelong learning sector in England and the publications in this area are by those in the compulsory sectors. (e.g. Bullock, 2009; Loughran, 2006; Murray & Male, 2005). This unfunded project focuses on teacher educators in the post compulsory sector from the perspectives of their journeys to be teacher educators, the sources, types and applications of knowledge in their work (to training teachers) and the identification of themselves. The research questions are: 1. What are the routes to becoming teacher educators/trainer in the sector? 2. How do teacher educators train others to become teachers? 3. What knowledge(s) do they draw upon and apply in their work? 4. How do they maintain your professional development? 5. How do they view themselves?
