Research output: Book/ReportBook - authored


Extensively revised, this is set to become the Pollard of the further and adult education market. The first edition of this textbook filled a gap in a crowded market for an accessibly-written introduction to reflective practice in adult and further education. These areas of education are changing rapidly however in line with current governmental policy, and the Further Education National Training Organisation (FENTO) has published revised standards to which teachers must adhere when teaching in further and adult education. This new edition of Reflective Teaching in Further and Adult Education has new sections explaining the FENTO standards, and has a unique new FENTO index to help students navigate the text. Yvonne Hillier has updated the text with essential information on new policy and how it affects teacher-training for adult and FE, and provides a guide to relevant acts of parliament, for example on disability. A vital new chapter discusses the changing structure of the qualifications framework, foundation degrees and e-learning. The revised book will be the most up-to-date textbook for teachers in further and adult education, whether in-training or in-service. With its comprehensive coverage and accessibly written style, the book is an excellent practical introduction - it is sure to become the standard classic of its field.
