It's a great re-write of an already good book that helps new educators get the essential aspects of their PTLLS assessment into scope. Great style and tone in the writing.

This is a really helpful, practical guide.
Very easy for trainees to engage with - particularly those who are not 'academic' - this is a really important point as som eof our more vocationally based trainees are oftne uncomfortable when engaging with theory.

This has proved to be a very useful text in assessing and verifying a PTLLS programme we delivered to colleagues within my organisation. It helped in establishing the standard and guided delivery and assessment. Gravells’ as usual shares her enthusiasm for the topic in clear and concise ways. Thoroughly recommended
