As a result of the Liverpool City Council's reorganization of its Further Education Service, the South Mersey College was established on September 1, 1986 through the amalgamation of the Riverside College of Technology and the Childwall Hall College of Further Education; two of the city's eight colleges of further education. This book provides an account of the development of the college over a four year period.

The book, first published in 1993, focuses specifically on the college curriculum, its organization and management structure and the quality and cost-effectiveness of its provision. Within this development, matters such as government policy, management, accountability and the introduction of National Vocational Qualifications had to be considered, together with the extent to which the diversification and development of the college effected the personal and professional growth of its staff. An analysis of the corporate changes which took place is provided by the author and related to the theories available from organizational analysis and applied behavioural science. This title will be of interest to students of education.
