A complete, all-in-one guide to the new Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, suitable for use with any awarding organisation.

It offers an easy-to-understand structure, incorporates key information on reflective practice and study skills, and provides full coverage of all the mandatory units. Accessible language and a practical approach are combined with the required underpinning theory, and a range of useful learning features include clear objectives, key words, points for pre-flection, case studies and activities to check your understanding. 

This new second edition includes:

• fully updated references to the Education and Training Foundation Professional Standards

• revised chapters, amended throughout to reflect the latest thinking around further education

• further reading and references updated in all chapters

• links to the latest government legislation, including the SEND Code of Practice (2014).

Written by the successful team who produced A Complete Guide to the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.

I found the book was brilliantly pitched at those wanting to join the Further Education and Skills sector but was also worded in such a way that those people with a slight amount of knowledge, such as progressing from the Level 3 Award in Education and Training would also find it extremely beneficial. It builds on knowledge obtained on the level 3 or goes into sufficient detail to be a standalone text as highly recommended on this level of course. It allows the reader to develop their skills further in certain key areas whilst still giving you a very rounded and unbiased view of this particular education sector.
