Description

All trainee teachers working towards ATLS or QTLS are accountable for the quality of their work, the delivery of their lessons and the success of their students. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the sector's challenging quality agenda and focuses on the reality of teaching and managing under pressure. It begins by asking what is meant by 'quality', and goes on to give guidance on delivering quality lessons and coping with inspections. Professional issues such as accountability and team working are covered in a practical, accessible way. Throughout, case studies provide insights into everyday challenges faced by trainee teachers.
