Teaching in Post-compulsory Education Summary

Teaching in Post-compulsory Education: Skills, Standards and Lifelong Learning by Fred Fawbert

Teaching in Post-Compulsory Education is the definitive resource for all practitioners who are working towards awards for teaching (at Threshold, Associate, Cert Ed, PGCE or Diploma level). The post-compulsory sector has been renamed the Lifelong Learning sector since the first edition of this book, and the ideas and concepts covered have relevance to teachers of all students aged 14 and above. The contents relate to the LLUK Standards that came into force in September 2007. Written by practising teachers, Teaching in Post-Compulsory Education is an insightful guide to all aspects of teaching, including: Identifying learnersa?? needs: Planning and preparing appropriate programmes of learning: Developing a portfolio of teaching techniques and methods for supporting a range of learners: Assessment and progression: Meeting professional requirements. Throughout the book each of the authors provides guidance on how the new standards relate to practical teaching situations, and looks at their inherent problems and challenges. Included are realistic activities and full information on how to generate appropriate evidence against the LLUK assessment outcomes.

Teaching in Post-compulsory Education Reviews

Mention -Book News, November 2008
'...very much structured as a teaching text, with each chapter opening with key concepts, followed by readings and activities very much in the style of university module material in Australia. ...very much a study guide, particularly relevant to contemporary Britain. Having said that, the topics covered are of interest to any beginning teacher in the post-compulsory sector...' - Annette Green, Charles Stuart University, NSW, Australia, Journal of Higher Eucation Policy and Management, vol. 27, no. 1, March 2005
'...two excellent features of the book are: suggested activities, many of which are imaginative and challenging...and the drawing together of a range of theories to inform thinking about and the practice of teaching to develop general principles.' - Studies in Higher Education, vol.30, no.1, February 2005

"An impressive guide to teaching in the lifelong learning sector, this book demystifies the complexity of the post-compulsory education system and supplies indispensable information for every teacher about the new qualifications and national professional standards now compulsory within the sector.... [It] will be an invaluable resource for all those who need to understand the complex reforms, new standards and teaching developments affecting post-compulsory education... an accessible, well-informed volume that is essential reading for teachers in the sector." - Dr. Jill Jameson, Director of Research and Enterprise, School of Education and Training, The University of Greenwich, April 2008--Sanford Lakoff
"Fred Fawbert's revised edition manages to combine a theoretical approach to teaching and learning with ample examples and activities from practice. The expertise of the contributing practitioners is wide-ranging, and a feature of this book is that readers are invited to assess suggested solutions and development points in the light of their own setting. Self-directed study is encouraged by the inclusion of excellent annotated lists of 'Useful Publications' and 'Useful Websites'. If you are embarking on a QTLS this book and its companion website will prove an invaluable source of information." - Dr. Angela Steward, Education Studies, City College Norwich--Sanford Lakoff
