A good read and very practical

Parts of this book were very helpful for students particularly for the Educational Professional Studies part of the PGCE course. This was recommended and put on the reading list.

Although structured around the previous ITE standards, this continues to provide a useful addition to the resource list for our beginning teachers. Frequently selected chapters include Assessment for Learning and Managing Behaviour for Learning.

An accessible book that gives a brief overview of some of the key issues in secondary teaching that trainees need to get to grips with. It includes practical activities and reflections throughout. It will be useful as an introduction to the themes covered.

At the start of this academic year, this book would have been a good starting point to help organise the course. It covers most areas that PGCE students will encounter over their course and links this with examples to illustrate the point. This is a good starting point for ITE studies

A useful addition to the booklist for those training to teach in the secondary phase. Also a good book to have in the CPD library in secondary schools for those looking for reading materials to support CPD.
