About the Author:

Bob Smale is a Senior Lecturer at University of Brighton Business School where he has been closely involved in developing the undergraduate business skills programme with Julie Fowlie. His teaching includes employee relations together with aspects of organisational behaviour and human resource management, and his research interests include employee relations and pedagogy. Bob has a background in the banking industry and employee relations. He was formerly a part-time professional musician and is also a qualified aromatherapist. He has worked in further, adult and higher education for almost three decades, as well as delivering personal skills training, mostly in the public and voluntary sectors.

Review:

This is a vital resource for both potential, and experienced students in higher education, whether undergrad or postgrad. With accessible examples and interactive activities that enable the reader to engage with and learn from their own experiences; this book successfully demystifies some of the structures and processes within HE that can often cause anxiety for students, and introduces language and terminology that students will encounter which is both empowering and developmental. It is recommended reading.

(Catherine McConnell)

Praise for the first edition ‘A really practical and positive text that underpins student learning. Used time and time again by students. This is an excellent text.’ 
(Michael Reed)
