With contributions from Kelly Briddon and Lynn Senior.

“The new edition contains some really useful additional material. It signposts to key policies and is brought up to date in identifying current influences and debates within the HE and FE sector. There is reference to views on the curriculum. More attention is given to Functional Skills. I liked the positive emphasis placed on classroom management as Behaviour for Learning. New developments and inclusions are well judged. It remains an accessible and sufficiently detailed book for all those who are on teacher education programmes.”

Victoria Wright, Senior Lecturer in Post Compulsory Education, University of Wolverhampton, UK

“This is a valuable resource that can be used by both trainee and recently qualified teachers, who are considering a career in the Further Education sector. It contains a mixture of both theory and practical activities which have been mapped to the LLUK standards. The contents key at the beginning of each chapter means it can be used for reference purposes. The text is easily readable and, therefore accessible to all.”

Cheryl Hine, Lecturer on Teacher Training, Leeds City College, UK

“This accessible second edition offers comprehensive, contemporary and stimulating insights into the theories of teaching and learning, whilst also providing a firm framework of meaningful and innovative strategies for trainee and qualified teachers to expand their knowledge and drive their practice forward to outstanding. I can see students dipping into the book again and again.”

Dr Vicky Duckworth, Edge Hill University, UK
