Edited by:

March 2012 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This interdisciplinary core textbook looks at learning and development from birth to 19 years providing, an accessible introduction to the common areas of study across the many roles supporting learning and development in the young people's workforce. There is coverage of common themes and issues, and theory is closely integrated with practice throughout.

Chapters cover:

- physical development

- cognitive development

- social and emotional development

- professionalism

- leadership

- quality and effectiveness

- working with families

- safeguarding and promoting well-being

- transitions

- equality and inclusion

Reflection points, workplace activities and professional development planners are all included and these challenge readers and students to critically engage with theory in their own practice. The book focuses on the key areas of knowledge that all those working with children are required to study, and places them firmly in the context of working together to support children and young people.

Nadia Edmond is Assistant Head of School (Teaching and Learning/CPD), at the University of Brighton. Mark Price is Principal Lecturer and Foundation and Honours Degree Programme Leader Working with Children and Young People at the University of Brighton.

Generally seems to 'hit the spot' with education support staff - especially for experienced practitioners now reflecting on their work roles through undergraduate study. This book not only sets out to use relevant theory as a means of better understanding practice - as with how children learn, for example, but also demystifies issues around policy, quality assurance and professionalism in which all education practitioners are enmeshed... Overall, this is an accessible and relevant springboard into informed professional refection.
