An accessible and up to date text on teaching and supporting adult learners, aimed at both student teachers and experienced practitioners. It explores teaching adult learners within a traditional further education (FE) context but also working with those adult learners on Higher Education (HE) courses taught within FE. Adult learners have a distinct set of needs and challenges which can include issues of self confidence, fear of technology, time management and financial constraints, and which may not always be fully recognised by educational practitioners or institutions. Teachers and student stories are used throughout this book to analyse learner needs and motivations, highlight possible barriers to learning and explore strategies for support. This publication enables those teaching adult learners to gain an understanding of the difficulties that students may experience while developing their own professional practice in order to create effective, focused and inclusive teaching strategies for this group.

Further Education is the most diverse of all the education sectors. Managing diversity and promoting equality, a legislative requirement of the 2010 Equalities Act, brings significant challenges for practitioners who are tasked with making the rhetoric of politicians a reality, often with little guidance and few resources. This book provides practical guidance for existing lecturers and trainee teachers, explaining how they can overcome these challenges and establish a positive learning environment to meet the needs of all learners. This accessible and up to date book extends the scope of the diversity and inclusion debate to consider a wide range of issues including age, working with cross-cultural groups, promoting effective gender relations, sexual orientation and working with current and ex-offenders. Each chapter includes clear objectives, case studies, critical thinking tasks, chapter reflections and a learning review audit.

This realistic, relevant and accessible book explores the teacher’s role and what makes for effective learning and teaching in the further education sector through means of a fictional approach. It provides a series of linked case study chapters, each set in the same fictional institution and each involving characters, with a range of pertinent roles, who appear and re-appear as their overall story arcs develop. Chapter aims are clearly stated and each narrative is followed by an analysis of key points through challenging critical thinking activities. The clear contextualisation of the required Standards and skills is of particular value to pre-service student teachers and those beginning their careers. The fictional approach provides a picture of working life and professional practice inside a further education institution with the flexibility to explore every topic essential to the student teacher, from professionalism, differentiation and inclusion to behaviour management and student-teacher relationships.
