Summary

"This should be essential reading for anyone involved in the training and professional development of early years practitioners. The book features clear definitions, summary charts, case studies, reading lists and exercises. I particularly liked the stimulating 'ideas galleries' with their statements from researchers, policy-makers and practitioners around the world." Nursery World "sensibly structured and easily assimilated. The blueprint for each chapter is soon established: each has an introduction and tasks are planned coherently. Themes can be followed through and it is easy to make connections between topics in different chapters. ...This unpretentious book challenges myths about what good teaching is, suggests interpretations of the new learning age and where the myriad of purported support agencies are situated in it." Talisman, March 2004 "...clearly written, well organised, easy to use, practical and accessible for both new and continuing teachers." The Lecturer Teaching and Training in Post-Compulsory Education is the definitive textbook on learning, teaching, resources, assessment and course planning in all areas of post-compulsory education. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to include recent initiatives and developments in PCE including: The growth of vocationalism in education Curriculum 2000 New curricula in nurse training and police training Foundation degrees The Learning and Skills Councils Appropriate FENTO standards are detailed in each chapter The authors examine key areas in post-compulsory education through topical discussion, practical exercises, theory, reading, analysis, information, discussion and examples of student work. Popular features of the previous edition such as the chronology of PCE have been retained and fully updated. The book examines the breadth of post-compulsory education from A-level, Further Education and vocational colleges through to private and public industry and commerce training. Designed primarily for use on the Certificate in Education (Post-Compulsory), the book is also used widely on training courses including the Postgraduate Certificate in Education, City & Guilds Further and Adult Education Teachers Certificate. It is key reading for students at all levels who are training to teach in post-compulsory education, teachers educators and trainers from industry and commerce.
