This textbook provides you with all the up-to-date information you need to pass first time, since it focuses systematically on each of the assessment criteria in the unit. As a lecturer / trainer / tutor / assessor / curriculum manager, how do you ensure: 1. that all staff are clear about the type and methods of assessment available and how to adjust them to meet the needs of individual learners? 2. that learners are involved effectively in the assessment process and take responsibility for their own learning? 3. that the role and use of constructive feedback is understood and applied effectively and meets individual learners’ needs? and 4. that staff are fully aware of the requirement to keep records of assessment and its implications for the continued success of the learning provider? This textbook addresses each of these questions, with supporting research as needed, while remaining tightly focused on the unit’s assessment criteria. Whether you are delivering training or lectures to 16-18 year-olds, mature learners, professionals, managers or international students, with a range of learning and assessment needs and barriers to learning, this book will prove useful in preparing you not only for your unit assessment, but also for work in the sector. Most importantly, the book adopts a practical approach, which is supported by evidence and, where relevant, cross-referenced to Ofsted and QAA expectations. It is therefore suitable for those intending to enter teaching and training as well as those already involved in delivering or managing a programme.

It provides detailed practical explanation and links to various other resources so that whether you are new to teaching or already in a teaching or related role, there will be a detailed examination of approaches to assessment in education and training. People purchasing this book may find it useful to have a copy of the second book in the series (Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training) as background.

This textbook provides you with all the up-to-date information and guidance you need to pass first time. It focuses systematically on each of the assessment criteria in the unit and provides a suggested structure for drafting responses to meet the requirements of the unit's assessment criteria. As a lecturer / trainer / tutor / assessor / curriculum manager, how do you ensure 1.that all individual learners' needs are identified and met effectively? 2.that full account is taken of disability and learning difficulties when preparing and delivering teaching, learning and assessment strategies? 3.that strategies applied to reduce the barriers to learning experienced by disabled learners and those with learning difficulties are legitimate and reasonable and do not provide them with an unfair advantage? 4.that the most appropriate teaching, learning and assessment methods are used?, and 5.that sessions are planned and delivered effectively and evidenced accordingly as part of a MICRO-TEACH? This textbook addresses each of these questions, with supporting research as needed, while remaining tightly focused on the unit's assessment criteria. Out of the three units of the Award in Education and Training, Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training is probably the most demanding to understand and apply.

Education and Training for the Oil and Gas Industry: Localising Oil and Gas Operations, Volume Four in the Getenergy series will set out the case for localising the oil and gas operations within hydrocarbon-producing countries. The focus of this final Volume in the series will be to explore the value of engaging with local suppliers, local talent and other local stakeholders in the exploration and production of oil and gas resources. Specifically, we will set out an agenda around which operators and service companies can coalesce and that highlights the ways in which smart, targeted investments in education, training and local infrastructure can create a new way of doing business, particularly in developing or emerging energy economies. Getenergy Intelligence have developed a unique tool to evaluate the potential cost benefits of localisation for any given project. This volume lays out the rationale, methodology and processes we have developed to successfully map out localisation and implement strategic capacity development for oil and gas operations. The significant cost benefits of localisation have been recognised by a number of major oil and gas companies, but localisation is still an aspect of doing business that is poorly understood by much of the global industry. In the first section of this book, the authors provide the rationale for localisation and layout the core reasons for developing the tool. In the second section, the tool is described and the exact methodology is explained. In the final section the authors provide three case studies, demonstrating the tool in action and showing how we are able to measure the cost effectiveness and wider value of a coherent approach to localisation. Three detailed case studies exploring the benefits of localising the oil and gas workforce A rigorous economic rationale for localisation of oil and gas projects. Explores how localisation (and investment in local education, training and talent within that) is at the core of a successful oil and gas business in the 21st century Methods of implementing a strategy to educate and train local people in order to meet the core business needs around individual oil and gas projects
