While an excellent book, the specifics do not relate to the award system in Ireland

Activities were very useful. Clearly set out and readable. All aspects of teaching is explored which offers much support for new colleagues and good opportunities to deliver CPD demonstrating explicit links from theory to practice.

This book is an excellent complement to the Award course (and I have also recommended it for the Level 4 Certificate learners.) It is clear, well-organised and full of practical tips and strategies.

A great book though very similar to Francis's PTLLS book she co-wrote with Jim Gould. If you don't have the PTLLS book and you are doing the AET, then it's definitely worth buying.
