Format: Paperback
I found this book an excellent reference source whilst doing my Certificate of Education this year. It is a good starting point for any research that you have to carry out. The bibliography also is very good for research purposes. There is also a section on the development of Post Compulsory Education, although not very detailed, it does list however key events from 1800 to 1999, ie Dearing report, Kennedy report etc. My only quibble is the price of the book...

This is a must read if you are following a PGCE.
Not for the faint hearted or those who are new to the terminology of Life Long Learning.
A difficult theoretic study made easy! Packed full of other references to follow that make the assignments just that bit easier.

Format: Paperback
I am a teacher of adults with disabilities in a Learndirect setting and though I am not presently doing a Cert Ed (Post-compulsory) I was drawn to this book because it appears, and to be fair mostly is, thoroughly up-to-date, comprehensive and authoritative.
I have found, however, that the book is of fairly limited use unless you are actually on the course. You might think this can't be a criticism, but the book does claim to be of general use for all FE and PCE teachers. To me, it just doesn't seem smoothly written. It can brush over things and overly focuses on activities for the reader which are written for groups on a Cert Ed course. These activities would be wonderful and would constitute the main value of this book, but unfortunately they are not going to work as well if you are reading it alone.
The book covers the usual topics - working in PCE, professional development, student learning, teaching and managing learners, resources for teaching and learning, assessment, exploring the curriculum, course design, development and evaluation. There is a good chapter on developments in post-compulsory education with a chronology of UK PCE and a comparative chronology of the US. The bibliography is excellent. At the end of each chapter FENTO standards are listed.
There is no doubt this is THE manual for those on the Cert Ed (PCE) but this review just serves as a little warning for those teachers not on the course!!
There are better books out there for general interest/professional development (Adults Learning by Jenny Rogers and Teaching Adults by Alan Rogers spring to mind). The former is the best book I have read on adults learning (see my review for that book) and Alan Rogers' book is more in-depth and equally as useful.

Anyone embarking upon a teaching within post-compulsory education has undertaken a difficult challenge. The sector is characterised by a diversity that demands flexibility and constant professionalism on the part of the teacher. "Teaching and Training in Post-compulsory Education" is an invaluable, practical guide to teaching in the sector. A second edition, updating and expanding the fine work in the original text, would be most useful.

I consider myself to be reasonably literate yet I find the majority of teaching text books to go too deeeply into the psychology and lack the "teachers Tips" that most of us could do with. This book falls into the trap of looking well laid out but quickly becomes bogged down in technical language that requires a dictionary permenantly placed by ones side.

A very comprehensive look at Professional Development. Very well planned and thought- provoking. An excellent buy for those who wish to look at their own Professional Development and to better their understanding.

Not the easiest of books to read. Has all the information you probably need for the job, but I put it down fairly quickly after picking it up. Ok for those who can read slightly more academically than me probably.

This book stands up well as a generic textbook for all diploma courses. Unashamedly academic in parts, it also covers practice well, and is one of the best general texts available.
