So for this you'll want to talk about specialist skills (Durkheim), role allocation (Parsons, which was built on by Davis and Moore - criticise for a circular argument), link this to meritocracy for functionalism
for Marxism you'll need to talk about how education is a means of preparing a pool of unskilled labour for work e.g. bowles and gintis hidden curriculum, it being an ISA, etc.
Not a full essay plan but it is a place to start!
