Managing Behaviour in the Lifelong Learning Sector

Second Edition

104 pages | Learning Matters
This latest edition provides clear advice and practical ideas on how to manage and motivate students, a key part of achieving QTLS. Fully updated to include the LLUK Standards, it takes account of the variety of contexts within the Lifelong Learning Sector and links to recent and current learning theory, drawing on the findings of research projects into student behaviour within the sector. Based firmly on what teachers and students have to say about their experiences, it uses case studies, dialogue and journal extracts to explore key issues and to help trainees and teachers develop professional expertise.

"This book is an absolute must no matter what the level" ( Lecturer, Stephenson College)

I have recommened this book to students taking a PGCE/Cert Ed course - it was especially helpful for the Tutoring module assignment

This book is a very useful resource for PGCE students and in particular for vocational lecturers undertaking a Certificate in Education. It is written in a way in which student teachers can understand and apply the techniques outlined in the book.

What is really useful about this book is that it puts the theory into scenarios which allows the reader to reflect on what they would do / wouldn't do.
