Achieving QTLS Series
The text covers day-to-day aspects of teaching including planning and assessment, giving guidance on the unique needs of HE students. Chapters on research and quality assurance support the reader in developing some advanced teaching skills. This is a practical guide for FE teachers and trainee teachers as the sector adapts to the needs of education today.
This is a good text for teachers teaching HE in FE
This is an interested text that has been offered to our students as supplementary reading. There are a number of teachers on the TAQA programme that teach HE within the FE environment and have discussed the practical examples put forward by the author in this text.
A helpful text exploring the role of HE lecturers in FE colleges and the wider policy drivers and quality assurance frameworks that underpinn professional practice.
Excellent book on the topic highly recommended
A useful text for people wanting to make that transition from FE to HE. Themes are relevant and answer the most common questions. It provides a clear overview of HE requirements and practices - of course every institution is different so it would be hard to be more specific than this book offers.
At present all my PGCE students are in secondary, SFC or FE. However, the book will prove very valuable at a later date. It is well laid out, clear and provides opportunity to use it for whole class discussion/reflection.
The chapter summaries are useful. The price makes it affordable for both the college and the student.
With the increase in the number of HE courses being delivered by FE institutes, this insightful text identifies and examines the issues, practicalities and opportunities offered by this expanding sector within a succinct and informative book. PGCE students wishing to teach undergraduate study within a further education environment will find this an invaluable addition to their course reading.
This is a useful book , enabling reflection on best practice in delivering HE courses in a FE college.
Another excellent book by Johnathan Tummons that is useful to develop ones own practice (Cert Ed/PGCE) and the practice of students who are delivering Higher Education within a Further Education environment. This book will be added to our reading list.
THis is useful for mentors as it provide them with some insight into teaching. However, some may find it challenging to relate ther concepts to clincial practice and mentoring students
