Abstract

This article provides a review of the major interpretations of the changing gender relations in FE management. In so doing, the key question of whether FE, at senior level, remains a 'boy's club' is addressed. In relation to this, the article considers the degree to which those women recruited to senior and middle management positions in FE are being required to 'carry the burden' of organisational change. Drawing on recent research across the FE sector, the article reveals some of the ways in which women FE managers attempt to balance the desire for interesting and challenging work, against the demands of intensified effort in a gendered organisational culture.
