'This book provides an invaluable resource for Teaching School leaders and others that are keen to embrace the new agenda for initial teacher education. The rich complexity and benefit of supporting professional learning through critical friendship and practice based enquiry is clearly presented. Practical tools for reflection enable the reader to engage with the text in a meaningful and engaging manner. This book should be essential reading for all those leading teacher training within schools'
Alison Peacock, Headteacher, The Wroxham School


While it is intended to be useful for all those involved in staff development in schools, there is a focus on experienced teachers moving into the role of supporting and mentoring recently qualified teachers.
Looks extremely useful!
