  • I am using your book 'Award in Education and Training' and your TAQA book to get me through my assessor qualification. Couldn't do it without them, far better than competing books, thank you! Hannah McCracken

  • I have used your books to successfully achieve my level 3 and level 4 teaching qualifications. To be honest, I passed because of your books! AA via Facebook

  • I have just successfully completed my CAVA thanks to your books. My knowledge was limited on assessment and my sister recommended your books. I have used these to improve my knowledge and skills to do my CAVA, which has enabled me to help my students to achieve qualifications. Maxine Hughes, tutor at a pupil referral unit and a middle lead for careers.

  • You are a name that I have known for some time in my role as a tutor and IQA for the AET. I have always thought your books very readable and one is never far from my desk. Helen Tait NAPPI UK Ltd

  • I have been using your material for reference and learning as I am currently working towards my assessor qualifications, and would like to thank you in advance for the inspiration. GC


  • I finished the Level 3 Teaching and Level 3 CAVA with the help of your books and resources. There doesn't seem to be any decent books on these topics by other authors. I would have been lost without your straightforward, informative text books and online resources. The books are a must for trainee and practising assessors. A++++ Martin Concannon

  • Your books are very informative and have helped me in my job role. Jacqui Tymon

  • Just wanted to tell you that I recommend your books to all my learners, they find them easy to read and they are invaluable at helping with assignment work and micro teaching. PJ

  • Your name appears so many times in my PGCE and TAQA assignments, you are somewhat idolised! SZ


 
  • I must say that your books have a lot to do with me becoming a good teacher. They are very digestible and easy to understand - so thank you for publishing these amazing books for trainee teachers. Malika Javed

  • A few years ago I completed my PGCE and your book pretty much was the guiding pathway for me. Thank you, your books are brilliant! Reg Bestwick

  • I just bought one of your books and I must say it’s proved invaluable so far on my PGCE! Clear, coherent and an enjoyable read. Bravo. Jessica Storey via LinkedIn 

  • I am an assessor and an IQA. I used your books to help me through my qualifications and with my job role. I thought they were amazing and so easy to read. Anthony James via LinkedIn

  • I am 65 years old and I am just embarking into the realm of becoming an assessor. I have purchased your latest book on the subject and I simply had to let you know that I find it absolutely brilliant. Well done and long may you continue with this work. Anthony T Ward MBA FRICS via email


  • As your publications are the only publications I will use on my Initial Teacher Education programmes, I am really looking forward to the new member of the family arriving! Since using your materials I have had 100% achievement rates on the programmes - a clear correlation with the quality of source material and outcomes for trainees. Dave Malachi via LinkedIn

  • Thank you for the books! You single handedly turned me into an FE tutor. Your books supported me through my TAQA, dragged me through the IQA qualifications and are now a constant inspiration as I work towards QTLS. As someone who hadn't even considered FE teaching as a career option, I can honestly say I couldn't have done it without them. I recommend them to every new trainer or assessor I work with, I go back to them myself for a refresh all the time. Claire Buckley GTG Training

  • I would like to thank you for the assistance your publications gave me in achieving my Level 3 Education & Training qualification. Invaluable, helpful and without doubt steered me in the right direction when confused. Rob Silveri via e-mail

  • have been recommending your books to students for years. A valuable resource indeed! Clare Crompton via LinkedIn

  • Your books are great, money well spent and helped me massively through my PGCE. Dave Young ASP Training 

  • I am a big fan of your books. I have read/referred to a great number of educational books, whilst completing the Cert Ed, TAQA and delivering the teacher education qualifications. I am a construction operative at heart and mind, I find academia quite difficult, your books broke the subject down perfectly and allowed a vocational tutor to excel in teaching. Most other authors of educational literature are not as understanding and write for academics which a lot of FE tutors are not. Andy Thompson via LinkedIn 

  • You have done it again! I am completing my EQA qualification and your book hits the spot. Well done and thank you. David Nicol Stanfords Training Ltd

  • Thank you for your work and books, they have always been a huge benefit to me personally, and to our delegates and clients. Barry Hunt UKTraining


  • Just to say that I really value and appreciate your materials. I deliver Initial Teacher Education and you've proven time and time again to be my get out of jail card when fate has conspired against me (usually a student behaviour issue) and my own lesson prep has gone to the wall!  Dave Malachi, Dean of International Higher Education, Waltham Forest College, London

  • The Award book is a must read. I use it with everyone who goes through the qualification with us. It is easy to read, easy on the eye and packed full of great information. First class!  Gill Payne, Gill Payne Partnership Ltd

  • What a marvel of support your books were. Very helpful and beneficial. PP

  • We deliver the courses every month and always recommend your book as the preferred course handbook for learners to buy beforehand. It is in a logical format, easy to read and written in plain English (always good). DU

  • I first started using Ann's books as a student conducting my Tutors, Assessor, IQA and EQA qualifications. I honestly could not have passed my qualifications without these books. These books gave me a much-valued insight on how to become an IQA and EQA. Several years on from being the student, I now deliver these qualifications as a tutor, assessor or IQA for Training Providers. Moreover recently I have been conducting standardisation training for Awarding Organisations using these books. Before my class starts, I show the students the Ann Gravells' books, how to get them on Amazon, and how to get the Kindle version. I am not sure that I would have progressed my career in the manner that it has without the required information. Ann has broken down the Learning Outcomes stage by stage within her books. This has made it perfect as a teaching and learning tool. When you open the book and see the headings, very quickly you will notice that it links up with the qualification. Unit 1 Assessment Criteria 1.1 is linked up with section 1.1 in Ann's book. Then Unit 1 Assessment Criteria 1.2 linked up section 1.2 in Ann's book. This transparent theme runs through the books, making it the perfect tool for teachers and students alike. I have got the investment make 1000 fold. I can not recommend these books enough! Mark Henry On Screen Learning

  • You have been an invaluable inspiration to me and continue to be so! RC
