This is an invaluable guide to making sense of the myriad of issues surrounding diversity and inclusion in FE. The authors, all experts in their field, provide readers with helpful hints and practical strategies for teaching a wide variety of students, including: refugees; those with Special Educational Needs (in particular, dyslexia and ASD); those for whom English is a second language; young learners (14-16); and those with behavioural difficulties. This should prove essential reading for lecturers everywhere.
