This book is for all those taking the Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL). The contents reflect the units of this new qualification, building on Initial Teacher Training, deepening and broadening professional understanding and skills while addressing individual teacher needs. Chapters cover core topics such as developing pedagogy, assessment for learning, special educational needs and behaviour. The book provides invaluable support for beginning teachers as they manage their professionally based, postgraduate learning, including guidance on critical thinking, reflective practice and research skills, and is clearly linked to the newly developed framework of Professional Standards for Teachers.

A well written book. It covers the basics required when completing an M.A.

This is for a future course, that does not have students on it currently, however it is an interesting informative read with lots of clear direction.

Probably needs updating in view of government changes, or re-writing.

Still many useful ideas here, for trainee teachers as well as NQTs.

Some interesting case studies.
