“This book is written with the ‘beginning’ teacher in mind: a PGCE student, a Teach First or other employment-based route participant, but it will also be of value to school mentors and university tutors. It is an expertly crafted book which may be read cover-to-cover or dipped into at time of need. Key professional issues are comprehensively covered in stand-alone chapters that clearly set out learning outcomes for the reader. I recommend purchase of this book as a ‘course companion’ that can be referred to many times during the early years of one’s teaching career.”
Dr Jacek Brant, Institute of Education, University of London, UK

Preparing to Teach in Secondary Schools is a thoroughly useful guide to the professional aspects of teachers' work. The book is well organised and easy to use for reference purposes. The chapters are readable, well-informed and thought-provoking; they take up key issues about professional competences, curriculum, inclusion and the role and identity of teachers - issues that every new teacher needs to think through.”
Professor Christine Hall, Head of the School of Education, University of Nottingham, UK

“This is a book that does exactly what it says on the tin, i.e. prepare new entrants for the profession of teaching. It provides insightful introductions to those key areas that new entrants are most fearful of which are behaviour management and lesson planning, without losing sight of the wider context of teaching and education. As a 14-19 specialist I am particularly pleased to see a chapter devoted to the current status of 14-19 curriculum reform.”
Helena Knapton, Course Leader in Business Education, Edge Hill University,UK

This informative, accessible and intellectually engaging text provides a definitive guide for trainee and newly qualified secondary school teachers. The book covers a range of core professional skills and concepts that new teachers need to acquire, irrespective of their subject specialism or training route.

Updated to reflect the many changes taking place in policy and practice, the latest edition covers core topics such as how pupils learn, planning and positive approaches to supporting pupil behaviour. New chapters deal with raising attainment, safeguarding and child protection. Key features of the text are designed to encourage reader engagement with the text and include:

  • Examples and illustrations drawn from real practice
  • Details of current research, fresh thinking and initiatives
  • End of chapter objectives
  • Reference to web-based information and resources
  • Activities, case studies and scenarios
Preparing to Teach in Secondary Schools, third edition is essential reading for all students preparing to become secondary school teachers.
