Fourth Edition

This core text provides comprehensive support for pre-service and in-service trainee teachers in the Lifelong Learning Sector covering all they need to know to achieve QTLS status. Supporting trainees through all stages of their professional development, the text takes the reader through the theoretical background underpinning teaching and learning and offers practical guidance on day-to-day challenges.

This book has been of great help to my students in preparing for their assignments on the PTLLS course this year. I have also referred students on a PGCE/Cert Ed course that I have taught to reference this title.

A very useful text to underpin initial teacher education for those teaching across the lifelong learning sector. Students have found this to be most useful when suporting their own approaches via reference to practices practitioners

Out of the three books we reviewed this was our least favourite. However, it is a very well-written book, well orgainised and with very explanations. We just felt that for our courses only parts of it were relevant.
