Description

A complete, all-in-one guide to the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, suitable for use with any awarding organisation.

This is a new, third edition of the essential text for all those working towards the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training. Tailored to meet the demands of the qualification and the latest Standards, it provides full coverage of all the mandatory units as well as information on reflective practice and study skills. Accessible language is combined with a critical approach that clearly relates practical examples to the required underpinning theory. This third edition:

  • has been fully updated throughout, including reference to the new Ofsted Inspection Handbook and legislation around GDPR, social media and apprenticeships
  • includes coverage in every chapter of a broad range of teaching and learning approaches within both physical and virtual environments (face-face, blended, distance learning)
  • features a new section about mental health and emotional well-being, considering both teacher and learner perspectives
  • includes new case studies throughout plus more examples of practical teaching and learning strategies
  • is suitable for use with all awarding organisations and HEIs

User friendly, easy to read and covered a good range of material with good examples and case studies.

The study skills section is very good - it picks up on the main issues facing trainees in Education and Training contexts and ensures that the advice and guidance are directly relevant to these learners. Also good are the sections on teaching observations and progression.

I will be recommending it for its simplicity as a core text for our new ITT introductory programme. Christian Beighton Canterbury Christchurch

Your Reviews on this book

I found the book was brilliantly pitched at those wanting to join the Further Education and Skills sector but was also worded in such a way that those people with a slight amount of knowledge, such as progressing from the Level 3 Award in Education and Training would also find it extremely beneficial. It builds on knowledge obtained on the level 3 or goes into sufficient detail to be a standalone text as highly recommended on this level of course. It allows the reader to develop their skills further in certain key areas whilst still giving you a very rounded and unbiased view of this particular education sector.

Neil Barnes, Colchester Institute

I really liked this book. It directly related to the course and adds more material. I will be recommending it. I liked the approach and that it checked on learning giving good examples for both me as a lecturer and also them as teacher trainers to be challenging resources.
