Abstract

This paper discusses one of Furlong’s major areas of work, the theory and practice of teacher education. Taking up where our joint publication Teacher Education in Transition: Re-Forming Professionalism? (Open University Press 2000) left off, it examines how accelerated moves towards school-based teacher education, as well as increased school autonomy, are impacting upon notions of teacher professionalism and professional formation in England. It looks at how in this context a ‘core’ professionalism mandated by central government through its teaching standards is being supplemented or even replaced by a series of ‘local’ professionalisms and the ‘branded’ professionalisms of Teach First and Academy chains. The paper then considers the implications of these developments for the future of Education as a subject of study in universities and, in particular, for the vision set out in Furlong’s recent book Education: an anatomy of the discipline (Routledge 2013).
