Edited by: Andy Davies, Mel Norman

Contributions by: Andrew J. Hobson

Based on UK education standards, this book is essential reading for those who will consider making an application for secondary initial teacher education. It introduces a range of perspectives on teaching and teacher education and will guide readers through the application process to ensure an appropriate choice in the training route that leads to a successful outcome. Key chapters cover pathways into secondary teaching, professional learning, developing as a subject specialist, classroom management, and working with young people. Useful features - such as jargon busters, progress checklists, and UK case studies - make the material accessible and helpful in navigating the 'new landscape' of teacher education. In addition, the text encourages critical reflection on school experiences of learning and teaching. Examples of theory, research, and practice will help in developing an informed stance on important themes within secondary education. (Series: Critical Learning) [Subject: Education]
