Teaching Skills. Towards a Strategy of Staff Development and Support for Vocational Preparation. An FEU Report on the Implications of Vocational Preparation for Teaching Staff. A Staff Development Publication.
Further Education Curriculum Review and Development Unit, London (England).
This document describes a curriculum-led approach to college-based staff development for vocational preparation teachers. A survey of staff development needs in this area is summarized, and emphasis is placed on the attitude of college administrators to vocational preparation. The remainder of the document suggests a conceptual framework within which college administrators and those responsible for staff development can operate. A checklist of skills and qualities is proposed as a starting point for assessing needs of teaching staff involved in vocational preparation. Methods for developing a program of staff development and support are described, including questions to ask to identify staff needs, analyzing and profiling those needs as a basis for the initiation of staff development programs, setting up a program, and agencies to use for staff development. Appendixes, amounting to approximately four-fifths of the document, include the full survey summarized in the narrative section, definitions and a glossary, approaches to preparing teachers for change, discussion of the concept of basic skills, and descriptions of college-based staff development exercises.
