With practical classroom examples to mirror the NVQ course requirements, this book is an essential and comprehensive guide for candidates, tutors, assessors and teachers supporting candidates for this course.
'The role of the Teaching Assistant has changed in the recent past and the need for them to have knowledge to support their skills has become an issue for schools... I would see this book being used as a recommended reading.. appropriate to NVQ 2, VQ support work in schools, LEA Teaching Assistant induction in preparation for enrolling on NVQ. The advantage this book would have is that it has a main focus on the NVQ.' - Sue Woodhouse, Belfry Associates (Adult Learning Unit)
'Yes there is a need for this book. As indicated by the author, books currently aimed at this market do not make the link between the underpinning knowledge and understanding an NVQ student needs. This book is good preparation for TAs who may wish to continue their professional development - that is, it teaches them how to make links between theory and practice.'- Sue Woodhouse, Belfry Associates (Adult Learning Unit)
'Many of the books published recently .. seem to have been as a result of a knee jerk reaction to capture the market. I think we are now into the second wave of texts for TAs, books that are more considered, better researched and written by colleagues working with TAs and written to be of more benefit for the TAs.'
