Kathryn Ecclestone has worked in post-compulsory education, first as a "life and social skills" supervisor on youth employment programmes in the late 1970s, then as a teacher in FE and a teacher trainer for practitioners in further and adult education. Her research interests are in the field of assessment policy and practice, and their effects on teaching and on student autonomy. Between 2002-2004, Ecclestone was associate director for further and adult education in the ESRC-funded Teaching and Learning Research Programme. Ecclestone is currently directing a project on Formative Assessment in further and adult education, funded by the Nuffield Foundation and an ESRC seminar series on emotional well-being and social justice. Ecclestone has just completed an ESRC seminar series for the TLRP on Transitions through the Lifecourse. Ecclestone has published widely on teaching, assessment and education policy. Her most recent book, with Dennis Hayes, is The Dangerous Rise of the Therapeutic Education, a critique of the way that education increasingly focuses on the emotional vulnerability of children, young people and adults.
