Description

This interactive textbook provides you with all the up-to-date information and guidance you need to pass first time. It focuses systematically on each of the assessment criteria in the unit, includes case studies and self-test questions, as well as a suggested structure for drafting responses to meet the requirements of the unit’s assessment criteria.

As a prospective or new lecturer / trainer / tutor / assessor, how do you ensure:

• that you are clear about what is expected of you in the role of lecturer, trainer, tutor, or assessor? 
• that you are aware of the key legislation that applies to your existing or proposed role?
• that you know how to identify and meet individual learners’ needs?
• that equality and diversity and appropriate behaviour are promoted within a safe learning environment?
• that you understand the limits of your professional responsibilities and when to refer learners to other professionals?     
This interactive textbook addresses each of these questions, with supporting research and hyperlinks to additional resources or materials as needed, while remaining tightly focused on the unit’s assessment criteria.

There are opportunities to consider multiple perspectives, with a range of practical resources that are relevant to teaching, training, assessing, tutoring, quality assurance and educational management. This interactive textbook is part of a series of books by the same author.

If you are new to teaching then this interactive textbook is an ideal companion. It provides the information and guidance needed to complete the first mandatory unit of the Award in Education and Training (AET). It is mapped directly to each of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the unit across all awarding organisations.
