A well written book on training an education. This would be very useful for instructors and lecturers or specially for those who are going through the professional training of PGCE programme. This is a very good mix of theory and practical aspects. I did not adopt it as the focus of this book is not higher education.

This text is very easy to read and gives useful examples and activities for the learners to apply in their on context. Appropriate for using as a reference point in many assignments on the PGCE course also.

No longer running the Certificate in Education and Training Programme. Due to lack of interest over a 2 year period.

Clear and well laid out for the Certificate route. Accessible for students and logical structure

Again, it provides the overview of the course as you would expect but I think it is lacking anything new, or dynamic. Learners need to feel engaged not a page by page turner for the Units or maybe I am fed up with seeing the same old material!!

As yet we have not had any students who are studying on the Certificate course.
