Learning and teaching in the post compulsory sector
- Jonathan Tummons - Durham University, UK
This text is an introduction to learning and teaching in the post compulsory sector. Those training to teach in the sector need to understand learning and learners in PCET.
This text goes further than other texts in its exploration of the sector. It encourages readers to critically evaluate the context of PCET in the UK and opens up their learning through introducing some global profiles.
The text explores learners in the sector, the diversity of the sector, the challenges and some topical contemporary themes. It covers a breadth of content and can thus be used as a general course text for all PGCE (PCET) courses as well as other education programmes. Through pedagogical features including critical questions, teacher and learner voices, links to practice and more, the text provides a resource for all those learning about PCET.
An excellent book for trainee teachers, highly recommended.
A textbook that will be useful for those studying for the Teaching Qualification Further Education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
This title is of direct relevance to an expanding area of activity at Cardiff Metropolitan University. It has proved a valuable asset in the delivery of level five and seven modules that focus upon the context of PCET in contemporary society. Examples of topics that draw support from this publication include comparative education, social justice and widening access and the centrality of lifelong learning in respect of economic inclusion.
This is going to be one of the essential reading materials for our education courses.it is well written and covers everything that is needed
Excellent over view with enough detail for the additional reading list. Worth a read by all PCET students
Great text to support all new learners on the PCET programme- perfect companion guide along the course and suitable for further learning once in post.
This book gives a variety of perspectives on current educational policy and procedures and will help and support students when looking at their module on professionalism.
This book has explored some contemporary themes in teaching and learning looking at the different learning styles between adults and the young etc. It has addressed some issues in FE & PCET with some suggested further reading list.
Though an interesting and well-structured textbook it does not really add anything to existing texts and merely rewrites what has already been written. So difficult to recommend students to buy this.
