Description - Supporting Learners in the Lifelong Learning Sector by Marilyn Fairclough

"Marilyn Fairclough has brought her humanity, focus and gentleness to a book which will be required reading for any teacher dealing with lifelong learners. We know that many such learners are vulnerable and uncertain. The book is crammed with practical tips, is underpinned by her wisdom and wide experience and will do much to answer the question that runs through the entire book: how, exactly, do you put learners at the centre of the process at the same time as delivering a demanding curriculum?" Jenny Rogers, Director of Management Futures Ltd, UK "It comes as no surprise that Marilyn Fairclough has written such an excellent book. It is 'bang up to date' with her referencing of the LLUK standards. The additional references at the end of each chapter will help trainee teachers contextualise the standards and relate them to their own teaching practice." Paula Kavanagh, Aylesbury College, UK "Having recently taught the new PTLLS and CTLLS qualifications I wish that this book had been available to recommend to learners working towards achieving these qualifications." Ian Grant, Milton Keynes Adult Continuing Education, UK Welcome to Supporting Learners in the Lifelong Learning Sector - the first book of its kind to deal with the topic of supporting learners in PCET, rather than just focussing on how to teach them. This friendly and accessible book stresses the significance of support at each stage of the learning process to minimize learner drop-out and underachievement. It considers a broad range of support that learners may need from their tutors, from making a choice of learning programme to their exit and progression to further learning or employment. Key features include: 'Something to Think About' at the beginning of every chapter Each chapter cross-referenced to the QTLS Professional Standard for those on PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS courses Real life examples from a variety of settings and subjects Lots of useful tips and ideas to ensure that all learners receive appropriate support Practical suggestions for developing classroom practice Suggestions for managing disruptive behaviour Thought-provoking activities and reflection points
