Ann has done a good job with this book. It makes life easier for those who want to go into teaching as everything is systematically laid out and learners have a good knowledge of teaching, learning and assessment cycle. All the units are in depth and comprehensive. I really like the text

A good book that supports the course, possibly needs a rethink in terms challenging the learner as much of the material already exists in other resources - so nothing new really

This book is being used by teachers and students on the Level 3 Award in Education and Training.
It gives them some useful information and suggested reading for the course.
Well written and user friendly, we have stocked this in the LRC and students are buying their own copies.
