The Neoliberal Tempest has transformed the Scottish Further Education (FE) sector. Rather than seeking to empower civil society through human flourishing, the focus now is firmly on producing "work-ready" individuals to meet corporate demands. This chapter explores the impact of neoliberal policymaking on the Scottish FE sector, and how changed priorities inhibit the potential for the sector to benefit society. It then reimagines FE in a world that regards education as more than merely a source of human capital. A return to classical liberal values, embellished with the emancipatory overtones of critical pedagogy, can allow the sector to scratch out a new tune - one that allows FE professionals to dance again, unfettered by the indoctrinatory chains of work-readiness.
