Following the success of her previous Practical Teaching guide, Linda Wilson has written the ultimate handbook for the student teacher wishing to pursue the next stage of training in the Lifelong Learning Sector. Practical Teaching: A Guide to PTLLS and DTLLS is the perfect companion for those studying or teaching the PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) and DTLLS (Diploma of Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector) qualifications. Drawing on years of experience in the field, Linda Wilson takes readers through all aspects of teaching and learning; from the initial interviews and inductions through the learning process, to assessment and finally reflection, offering helpful and workable tips for success along the way. This book is directly mapped to the units and learning outcomes of the PTLLS and DTLLS qualifications, and supplies practical ideas for teaching in an easy-to-read style. Essential theory is introduced on a need-to-know basis, and is set in the context of its application within the classroom.
