Abstract

This study explores the impact of neoliberalism on adult education in New Zealand by examining the experiences of 14 educators and directors in four Private Training Establishments (PTEs). While the effects of neoliberal ideology and policy have been significant, the findings indicate that adult educators critically examine their practice and constantly negotiate their own agendas.
