Description

If you've ever stopped to ask for directions, you will probably have noticed that many people have the basic instincts needed to teach and enjoy imparting their knowledge. Added to appropriate subject knowledge, this is where vocational training begins... Building on your subject knowledge and skills, The Nuts and Bolts of Vocational Training and Assessment is an accessible and invaluable guide for vocational trainers. As someone who has always learned best through doing things, rather than academic study, author Eric Baker has made his book practical in a day-to-day way. Its authority comes from his past training experiences and personal development as a vocational trainer. Starting from the basic principles, it takes the reader through the intricacies of providing training courses in a step-by-step way and covers areas not usually addressed in educational textbooks. This book is primarily intended to be a companion for those studying to achieve an academic vocational qualification. As such, it provides support by being accessible, bringing a common-sense approach and using a sense of humour. The conversational style of traditional textbooks is combined with the modern exact approach expected today, resulting in an accessible and enjoyable read. Above all, it does what it says on the cover!

About Author

It was during training as a building services technician that Eric Baker learned the concepts of life-long learning and continuing personal development, and once he became qualified it was part of his duties to pass on his knowledge and skills to those younger than him. He then found a natural progression into the vocational training of electricians and apprentices in 1989. Recently retired from his role as a further education college lecturer and NVQ assessor in the Isle of Man, Eric has enjoyed attending the `University of Life' and now wishes to pass on his knowledge and skills in the traditional and time-honoured ways.
