Full description for Teaching in Post-compulsory Education
This textbook serves as a resource for intending or experienced teachers, trainers and support workers within post-compulsory education who are working towards professional awards based on National Standards. Although the authors, who are all experienced practising teacher educators, have based the discussion firmly on the Further Education National Training Organisation (FENTO) framework, the issues that are addressed are relevant to the broader post-14 Learning and Skills sector. They include advice on: relevant developmental activities which generate appropriate evidence from practice - the structuring of a Personal Development Journal; the development of a Practitioner File incorporating schemes of work, session plans, learning contracts, action plans, assessment, specification and more; and identifying the theoretical concepts underpinning familiar teaching approaches. The title is essentially a practical guide to the numerous diverse contexts within Further Education today and contains material on such key aspects of professional development as planning, delivering, assessing and evaluating teaching and learning. Information is also provided on such influential factors as the Common Inspection Framework, Ofsted, Learning and Skills Council and the Basic Skills Agency.
