Practical Teaching: A Guide to Teaching in the Education and Training Sector is the perfect companion for those studying or teaching the new Award, Certificate and/or Diploma in Education and Training, PGCE, Cert Ed and all Initial Teacher Training Qualifications. This comprehensive new title is the ultimate handbook for the student teacher wishing to pursue the next stage of training in the Further Education Sector, and it follows the success of Linda Wilson's previous Practical Teaching guides. Drawing on years of experience in the field, Linda Wilson takes readers through all aspects of teaching and learning; from the initial interviews and inductions through the learning process, to assessment and finally reflection, offering helpful and workable tips for success along the way. Her book offers practical ideas for teaching in an easy-to-read style. Essential theory is introduced on a need-to-know basis, and is set in the context of its application within the classroom. This text is also updated to include strategies for improving teaching and learning in line with guidance from the Common Inspection Framework, and it is a useful tool to provide CPD for qualified teachers.
