When the smaller initiatives, some of which concern education and VET, are considered, the whole of Scotland is able to attract some EU funding. Stakeholders and partners in vocational education and training in Scotland 33 The European Social Fund (ESF) is the main instrument as far as VET is concerned. In Scotland this operates as one national programme, the running of which has been largely decentralised from the Scottish Office to an external ESF Unit, based in Stirling. Within the partnership which oversees the ESF, the colleges form perhaps the most important and best organised sector.

The strength of this narrowly-based partnership was demonstrated in the early 1970s when joint pressure by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the Trades Union Congress (TUC) persuaded the government to drop its plans to abolish the ITBs (Perry 1976). The ITBs’ operations had to deal with the distinctive characteristics of the Scottish education system, such as the school leaving certificate, school leaving dates and the structure of further education. However, only a few of the larger ITBs treated Scotland as a distinctive area of operation (Fairley 1982) and gave the country its own partnership arrangements.

The VET reforms of the 1990s may provide some illustrations of this point. The strength of public sector partnerships is cited as the main reason for the limited impact of market-inspired reforms on Scottish education (Pignatelli 1994). As we shall see this claim is less true in the case of VET, perhaps because in Scotland partnerships were largely reconstructed in the 1990s at the same time as market-inspired management reforms were introduced. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s the main institutions of VET introduced market forces and mechanisms into VET, raising some degree of suspicion and even opposition in what Harvie (1994) has called the ‘collective consensus’ of Scottish society.
