Promotional Information

Tummons has taken the best of Curzon's Teaching in Further Education and updated it to ensure that the content is relevant to the sector today.

About the Author

L. B. Curzon, formerly principal of colleges of FE in Chester and London, UK, was an experienced teacher with a background in economics and law. Jonathan Tummons is Lecturer in Education and Pathway Leader for the MSc in Educational Assessment at Durham University, UK.


Tummons is to be praised for maintaining the depth and subtlety of Curzon's original work while bringing it up-to-date with relevant examples and recent references. Where other books mislead through over-simplification, Teaching in Further Education clearly explains complex concepts so that new teachers can better understand their context and develop their practice. * Kevin Orr, Senior Lecturer in Education, University of Huddersfield, UK *
This edition, revised and updated by Jonathan Tummons, provides a rigorous and detailed text grounded in current themes and recent research. It will be a valuable resource to teachers and trainee teachers in the Further Education sector. * Susan Wallace, Professor of Continuing Education, Nottingham Trent University, UK *
In this timely update, Jonathan Tummons has revised this classic, highly-respected text to meet the needs of a new generation of further education teachers whilst retaining the comprehensive and critical approach of the original. As in the previous editions, we are reminded that teachers in further education are critical, reflective beings who need a substantial body of theory and advice to support their initial training and their continuing professional development. Jonathan Tummons tells us that 'learning is learning to think'. As his welcome revision makes clear, this applies to teachers as well as to students. In contrast to many slim volumes currently available, this book treats its readers as thinking, critical professionals, rather than 'deliverers of learning'. This comprehensive text is a refreshing antidote to an outbreak of emaciated texts which regard teaching as little more than 'delivery' of content. * Peter Scales, Senior Lecturer in Education, University of Derby, UK *
This welcome revised book just gets better and better! Brimming with great ideas and grounded in meaningful contemporary approaches, with its excellent blend oftheory and practice, it remains an essential read and certainly one I will dip into again and again. * Vicky Duckworth, Senior Lecturer in Post-Compulsory Education and Training, Edge Hill University, UK *
