"Many years ago I completed an adult education certificate course, but have rarely had occasion to put my skills to use, until now - and they are rusty! This book is a super resource for people like me who need to brush up their skills - and also for anyone who is studying to work in further education or skills training. It is so comprehensive, taking you from the very basics right up to preparing for observation of your teaching practice. I was really impressed with how clear and approachable the language and structure are. It is very easy to understand, has a lot of case study examples to support learning - and it is clear that the author is very experienced in the field. I wish I'd had a text this good when I first did my training."

"I have just completed proofreading your book. After a career in teaching (albeit in the primary and middle age ranges) may I say that I found it a most impressively comprehensive guidebook for steering trainee teachers through their courses and early teaching experiences. It will give new teachers the confidence to embark upon their careers, with a sound foundation of knowledge and principles, to educate and inspire generations of learners."
