“Preparing to Teach in Secondary Schools is a thoroughly useful guide to the professional aspects of teachers' work. The book is well organised and easy to use for reference purposes. The chapters are readable, well-informed and thought-provoking; they take up key issues about professional competences, curriculum, inclusion and the role and identity of teachers - issues that every new teacher needs to think through.”
Professor Christine Hall, Head of the School of Education, University of Nottingham, UK
“This is a book that does exactly what it says on the tin, i.e. prepare new entrants for the profession of teaching. It provides insightful introductions to those key areas that new entrants are most fearful of which are behaviour management and lesson planning, without losing sight of the wider context of teaching and education. As a 14-19 specialist I am particularly pleased to see a chapter devoted to the current status of 14-19 curriculum reform.”
Helena Knapton, Course Leader in Business Education, Edge Hill University,UK
