Working with Black Adult Learners. A Practical Guide.
This guide identifies the key skills for the delivery of education and training for black adult learners in Britain. It provides a rich resource of examples of good practice and case studies of innovative approaches to policy development, curriculum, and support. Each section is structured to include introductory comments to clarify current thinking and contextualize recommended good practice; an outline, in checklist form, of some key issues for students, practitioners, and managers (as appropriate) for use as a training aid or to inform planning, review, and policy development discussions; a practical example, case study, or resource; and a list of resources and useful contacts. Section 1, Pre-Course, covers community consultation, policy development, outreach, and marketing and publicity. Section 2, Recruitment and Selection, addresses educational guidance; precourse assessment and accreditation; recruitment, selection, and admissions; staffing issues; and ethnic monitoring. Section 3, On-Course, focuses on these topics: ethos and environment, personal support, curriculum issues, on-course assessment, language support, and working with refuges. An appendix provides some useful definitions of race equality terms. (YLB)
