Irish Further Education and Training practitioner identities: an Archerian analysis

Research output: Contribution to conferencePresentation

Abstract

This paper discussed the insights generated when a conceptual lens informed by the work of
the social realist Margaret Archer (1995, 1996, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2012) in relation to identity,
was applied to the data generated from 12 narrative interviews with Irish Further Education
and Training (FET) practitioners as part of a doctoral research project. Archer’s concepts were
used to analyse the interviewees’ stories in order to better understand their ‘personal identities’
and ‘social identities’, which included their professional/work identities, and how they as
‘Social Actors’ embodied and ‘personified’ their FET practitioner roles (Archer, 2000).
