This essential text provides an accessible and up to date critical analysis of professionalism for student teachers and practitioners within the Further Education (FE) sector. Professional values, knowledge, understanding and skills form the core of the standards against which teachers are measured and the framework for the teacher’s development, starting with initial qualifications and progressing through a career long process of continual professional development (CPD). The book introduces a range of theoretical models and examples of professionalism. It examines the critical importance of self-awareness and understanding of others as the basis for effective professional relationships with learners. The application of professional values, knowledge and skills, both in the teaching role and in the wider academic community, is discussed. Throughout the reader is encouraged to relate the theories to their own professional values and practice and to reflect on their own levels of professionalism and CPD requirements.

This book looks at critical reflection as a key skill for all teachers in further education (FE) and an important part of the new Professional Standards. In particular the text explores the key themes of self-awareness, planning, managing behaviour and CPD in relation to reflective practice to demonstrate how it can support those areas of teaching that most often cause concern. The limitations and benefits of reflection are analysed and action research is identified as an important facet in developing professional reflective practice which can in turn enhance both the personal and professional life of FE teachers.

Norman Lucas contends that further education (FE) is fundamentally divided and that the practices of FE teachers are best understood by appreciating the diversity of needs of FE students. He shows that the tensions between the divisions, diversity and growing regulation are at the hub of the many challenges facing policy makers and FE teachers. This book opens up a debate on three fundamental issues: • the FE sector is too diverse and needs to be realigned to give institutions and teachers a clearer strategic and professional focus • the present 'industrial' national occupational standards should be abandoned in favour of professional standards akin to that of schoolteachers • the diversity, variety and specializations of FE teachers and the wide ranging needs of FE learners requires the practice of FE teachers to be redefined. This book is an invaluable addition to the largely under-research area of further education and is essential reading for teachers, policy makers and students who need a broader perspective and understanding.

This realistic, relevant and accessible book explores the teacher’s role and what makes for effective learning and teaching in the further education sector through means of a fictional approach. It provides a series of linked case study chapters, each set in the same fictional institution and each involving characters, with a range of pertinent roles, who appear and re-appear as their overall story arcs develop. Chapter aims are clearly stated and each narrative is followed by an analysis of key points through challenging critical thinking activities. The clear contextualisation of the required Standards and skills is of particular value to pre-service student teachers and those beginning their careers. The fictional approach provides a picture of working life and professional practice inside a further education institution with the flexibility to explore every topic essential to the student teacher, from professionalism, differentiation and inclusion to behaviour management and student-teacher relationships.

Students are bingeing on large amounts of information and then, in government induced bouts of vomiting otherwise known as national tests, they spew it all out. This is how Frank Coffield introduces the term Bulimia Academica, which he treats every bit as seriously as its medical counterpart. Students resort to bulimic learning to cope with a testing regime that ministers in England would have you believe is robust and rigorous, but is in fact purgative and emetic.This book presents not only a powerful critique of current government policies, but also a considered response to that all-important question from classroom teachers: Within the tight parameters set by government policy, what could I do more effectively in class next Monday? This book argues that, although there is no such thing as ‘best practice’ to identify and copy, there are a number of far more effective approaches, such as harnessing the potential power of feedback.Three co-authors also make important contributions that extend the scope of the book. John Webber introduces the notion of ‘studentship’ – the skills, behaviours, and beliefs that students need to become better at learning and thinking. Cristina Costa shows how students’ creativity can be released by using new technologies. And Walter Müller points to the damaging effects on German schools of politicians treating them as economic instruments in the global race, subjected to market discipline.Written in a clear, engaging, and thought-provoking style with a compelling evidence base, Beyond Bulimic Learning is much more than a ‘how to’ book to improve teaching in the adult and further education sector. It also explores in detail the central question: Can we transform classrooms and colleges without first transforming the role of the state?
