The post-compulsory education and training sector plays a critical role in both the vocational and academic education of our young people. At the heart of its philosophy has been widening participation through the encouragement of under represented groups. As such, teachers have a critical role to play in providing a range of educational opportunities central to the skills required to deliver a secure economic future for the country.
Written for trainee teachers at all levels, the book aims to support the development of the personal and professional skills required to work in the sector and helps students to fulfil the standards for qualified teacher status. Providing a comprehensive guide to contemporary issues within post-compulsory education it covers:
• the professional role of the teacher both in the classroom and as a manager
• supporting skills for life with adult learners
• diversity and equality
• CPD and informal learning
• Leadership, management and organisational
• Research in professional practice
Including reflective questions and discussion points throughout, Teaching in Post-Compulsory Education is ideal for training and practising teachers on a range of courses including the City & Guilds qualifications, University Certificate and Diploma students, or those on a PGCE course in post-compulsory education.
