January 2011 | 112 pages | Learning Matters
More and more, teachers in the lifelong learning sector are required to teach the 14-19 age group. This book is a practical guide to delivering learning to 14-19s. It begins by looking at the background to teaching 14-19 in FE and covers current pathways for achievement. Coverage of effective delivery of the new Diploma qualification is included, giving guidance on planning and assessment. It goes on to explore the challenges of behaviour, participation and re-engaging disaffected learners. Finally, it considers the wider context of building partnerships with schools and the needs of industry and employers.

As more 14-16 are coming into FE colleges, I felt I needed more information about this age group becuse my experience is with primary pupils or adults. Really help and have passed on to LSAs working with this age group too.
