5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Book 14 April 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is a must for those studying or teaching the PTTLS course. It is full to the brim of common sense advice balanced with just the right level of theory. I particularly enjoyed the chapters relating to attitude change and the explanation of the microteaching session. I look forward to the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jargon unravelled! 8 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
I chose this book to compliment an internal 'train the trainer' Edexcel accredited PTLLS award. Written over fourteen chapters, each chapter has an overview of learning outcomes directly relating to the award. Clear definitions are included that are essential for those new or returning to teaching and training in the Lifelong Learning sector. Terms such as Diversity, Inclusion, Differentiation and Equality are fully explained. If you invest in just one book to achieve the PTLLS qualification, this is the one to choose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Support for Award 29 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
Studing for the PTLLS award which is now a requirement for tutoring or teaching adults (over 16)
Not studied for over 25 years this makes it so easy to comprehend. Started off thinking never going to get this, once my book arrived it became a lot clearer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend. 11 Oct 2011
By Ms. J. Bedford VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good book if you are doing the PTTLS award and can't recommend it enough. It doesn't tell you exactly how to do it like some reference books, but more or less puts you on the right track.
It makes suggestions to what you shoudl research and highlights key points that you may need to be considering when applying yourself to some of the learning outcomes to be achieved.
Well worth the buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and well written 2 April 2013
Format:Paperback
I came across this book while browsing in a bookshop, as I had been asked to run a training of trainers course and I was looking for a curent guide to training teachers of adults. This book proved invaluable - it's very clearly laid out and well written and helped me get a handle on the main skills covered by PETLL and interesting ways to approach thjem in the training room. I would highly recommend this book to anybody starting out on the business of passing on skills and knowledge to adults.
