Teaching in Post-Compulsory Education is the definitive resource for all practitioners who are working towards awards for teaching (at Threshold, Associate, Cert Ed, PGCE or Diploma level). The post-compulsory sector has been renamed the Lifelong Learning sector since the first edition of this book, and the ideas and concepts covered have relevance to teachers of all students aged 14 and above. The contents relate to the LLUK Standards that came into force in September 2007. Written by practising teachers, Teaching in Post-Compulsory Education is an insightful guide to all aspects of teaching, including: Identifying learnersa?? needs: Planning and preparing appropriate programmes of learning: Developing a portfolio of teaching techniques and methods for supporting a range of learners: Assessment and progression: Meeting professional requirements. Throughout the book each of the authors provides guidance on how the new standards relate to practical teaching situations, and looks at their inherent problems and challenges. Included are realistic activities and full information on how to generate appropriate evidence against the LLUK assessment outcomes.
