    This article adopts a radical lens and examines the relationship between community development, adult education and professionalism. It draws from research on one specific community-university partnership and presents the profession-alisation of community work as detrimental to radical practice because of its encouragement of individual vertical progression for learners and a favouring of professional practitioner benefits over collective community gain.
