The Award in Education and Training
Further Education and Skills
The Award in Education and Training is the threshold qualification for anyone wanting to teach in a wide range of contexts including the further education and skills sector, workplace learning, offender learning and adult and community settings. This user-friendly text is your guide to all the units of the Award and is a key text for the course. Structured around the teaching, learning and assessment cycle, it includes full coverage of all units as well as information relevant to the Learning and Development units. Examples, activities and checklists help link theory to practice. The text is written for all learners and all awarding organisations.
This revised edition is updated for the new qualification requirements and the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers.
• A key text for the new Award in Education and Training.
• Contents specifically follow the teaching, learning and assessment cycle, and match the qualification requirements.
• Readable, relevant and easy to understand.
• Provides valuable support for prospective teachers and trainers with little or no previous experience.
• An excellent foundation for those considering or progressing to further teaching qualifications.
Well structured book that clearly follows and compliments the AET course - provides our learners with a welcomed additional resource.
This book has a good logical structure, it contains some useful information, but will not be very useful to our students in terms of guidance towards assessment.
Excellent addition to the students reading list
This book provides a sound and clear practical guide to the development of teaching and learning. The references to theory are particularly welcome, and support the practice advocated in the text.
This remains the book that we provide on our AET courses as essential reading and to support our in class discussions.
Ann Gravells always writes books that are easy to read and understand.
It is in our reading list for the learners.
Without actually doing the work for the student this text (if read) will enable effective and enjoyable learning and really help with assignment completion, would not have the students be without a copy.
Thank you. I now recommend this book for my trainees completing the C&G 6502 Award in Education & training. This course is delivered 3 times a year.
This book has been a godsend as everything in it is explained clearly making it easy for learners to understand.
