Achieving QTLS Series
"A thorough 'cradle to grave' approach to starting teaching, from first day on course to interview attendance and further academic study. A very useful resource." (Programme Leader, Thames Valley University)
This book supports the new teacher as they grapple with lesson plans, lesson ideas and to working effectively in the sector. It offers an insight into real lived teacher experiences, which allows emerging and experienced teachers to reflect on and review their own practice.
good resource although is not essential for the course.
This text provides a practical starting point for those seeking to develop their skills in this area
As part of the framework of Award, Certificate and Diploma this book is ideal.
What a super book.
Offering lots of advice and guidance in terms of being a 'teacher' and a 'trainee teacher'.
The book has a lovely light-touch approach and presents lots of 'do-able' activities for the classroom with learners and for reader as 'trainee' and student.
Particularly helpful is the guidance on what to expect from your mentor - I think this section is also extremely help for mentors too!
A great book especially if you are relatively new to teaching or are on a DTLLS course. Contains some good practical suggestions (e.g. on classroom management). Also a very useful chapter for trainee teachers on how to reflect on their teaching practice.
One very minor criticism - it has not been revised to meet the changes in the Ofsted grading criteria so on p.29 grade 3 is referred to as 'satisfactory' when it now is actually 'requires improvement'
As a new practitioner or an experienced teacher this book is worth reading and refering to. As a new practitioner an essential guide to teaching practice.
Great book for new teachers
Very useful for a range of students working in the lifelong learning sector.
