Provides rUK system context whilst engaging with similar themes/units as we expect to teach. There are a number of other texts in a similar vein which go into similar detail around the research, but this is a well structured book for early career teachers getting to grips with classroom practice and theory.

I have taken on a new role as Teaching and Learning Coach. This is a very useful book that I will be recommending to the new lecturers that I will be supporting as it is extremely useful information and is very readable. Many of the these new lecturers will be embarking on their Cert Ed or PGCE programme in September, so I will be recommending that this is included in their reading list for reference. I will also recommend to any lecturers I am coaching as there is extremely useful content on behaviour management which we have a particular issue with at the present time.

The four part format makes this easy to navigate and select the required guidance. In particular, Section 2 Supporting learning and development, contains key advice to help the novice with inclusion and differentiation in the classroom and offers strong support.
