This is a collection of case studies and highlighted practices presented and explained by a group of educators who are highly regarded in their fields. These practitioners are experts who are still teaching in the sector and are a really inspiring and diverse group. Their passion for what they do is obvious and contagious. Just scanning the short biographies at the start of the book made me eager to read it.
This book is well organised with each chapter set on in a similar manner addressing the main topics of who are the learners, why are they learning, what and how are they learning, followed by conclusions. It is a relatively easy read with insights and commentary from the editor added at relevant points.
This book affords the opportunity to gain nuggets of wisdom from fields ranging from maths and art to cookery and hairdressing across a diverse range of learners in the FE sector including SEN and prisons. This is what FE is all about and I thoroughly recommend this book.
