This book provides a comprehensive overview of how to teach younger learners in Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET). With clear guidance and offering practical strategies, Teaching 14-19 helps you understand how students learn, the theory that supports this and the role of assessment in this process. There is also an extensive focus on how to manage behaviour, as this is the most frequently raised concern. The authors show that the overarching models of learning and teaching for 14-19 year olds are very different between school and PCET. The book explores these various models and in particular looks at how this understanding might help you in planning for learning.

As well as appropriate models of practice relevant to this age group, further features of the book include:

  • Practical hints, tips and suggestions for practice
  • Case studies to help you learn from and reflect on practice
  • Discussion of theoretical issues that will enable you to understand and underpin your practice
  • Additional reading and resource suggestionsThis book is essential reading for trainee and practising tutors, teachers and lecturers in schools or colleges.
