Additional Information: The paper presents the first detailed history and critique of the attempts to provide a 'liberal eduation' for technical and vocational students in England. It draws on historical documents, including government papers, from the 19th century to the present day. It connects the historical analysis to curricula challenges posed by current policies to raise the 'participation age' to 18.
