This core text provides comprehensive support for pre-service and in-service trainee teachers in the Lifelong Learning Sector covering all they need to know to achieve QTLS status. Supporting trainees through all stages of their professional development, the text takes the reader through the theoretical background underpinning teaching and learning and offers practical guidance on day-to-day challenges. This fourth edition has been fully revised and updated and includes a new chapter on teaching practice with notes on observation and lesson planning. New information on behaviour management has been added to support trainees in an aspect of teaching that many find challenging.

As a teacher in training I found this book extremely interesting. It is very well written and easy to understand. It is a very useful book that covers all the vital aspects of teaching that are essential to all new teachers. It has drastically improved my teaching and I would recommend it to everyone.
