Overview

This is a revised and updated edition of a highly successful textbook. Designed primarily for use on the Certificate in Education, Post-Compulsory, it has also proven valuable for other Post-Compulsory training courses such as the Postgraduate Certificate of Education, Certificate of Education, City & Guilds Further and Adult Education Teachers' Certificate, as well as for teachers in schools, sixth forms, FE or tertiary colleges, HE institutions and trainers in industry and commerce, both in the private and public sectors. Chapters focus on the learning processes such teachers will undergo, as well as on key areas of concern to them such as learning, teaching, resources, assessment and course planning. In addition, there is a consideration of the growth of vocationalism in education, as well as a valuable chronology of Post-Compulsory Education. Each chapter is sub-divided into self-contained sections concentrating on the key issues of a topic with frequent practical exercises which focus on the context the teacher works in. These exercises are supported by theory, reading, analysis, information, discussion and examples of student work where appropriate. The appropriate FENTO standards are listed at the end of each chapter.
