What knowledge, skills & abilities do Post-Compulsory teachers need? What kind of activities will help them develop these? What critical/reflective apparatus do teachers need which will help them to continue their development beyond the completion of a course of training? This is a textbook primarily for use on the Certificate in Education, Post-Compulsory, but it will be useful for other Post-Compulsory training courses such as the City & Guilds Further & Adult Education Teachers' Certificate, as well as for teachers in schools, 6th Forms, FE or tertiary colleges, HE institutions & trainers in industry & commerce, both in the private & public sectors. Special features include: * Practical learning tasks focused on real teaching contexts * Tasks are complemented by analytical & reflective approaches * Strong author team with a wealth of collective experience in post-compulsory education Chapters focus on the learning processes such teachers will undergo, as well as on key areas of concern to them such as learning, teaching, resources, assessment & course planning. In addition, there is a consideration of the growth of vocationalism in education, as well as a valuable chronology of Post-Compulsory Education. Each chapter is sub-divided into self-contained sections concentrating on the key issues of a topic with frequent practical exercises which focus on the context the teacher works in. These exercises are supported by theory, reading, analysis, information, discussion or examples of student work where appropriate.
