Women Learning: Ideas, Approaches & Practical Support. A Handbook for Women's Education.
National Inst. of Adult Continuing Education, Leicester (England).
This handbook is designed for use by anyone involved in providing educational or training opportunities for women. Chapter 1 discusses the outcome of women's education and use of this handbook. Chapters 2-6 make general suggestions about various issues around the provision of high quality, relevant, and responsive education and training for women. Chapter 2 considers making women welcome. It focuses on practical and personal barriers: timing, care of dependents, accessibility, entry qualifications, finance, and benefits and grants. Chapter 3 discusses needs assessment, target groups, outreach and networking, publicity, and initial advice and guidance. Chapter 4 addresses content, learning approaches, and progression. Chapter 5 focuses on objectives, feedback and monitoring, and assessment and certification. Chapter 6 discusses staff and their support and training. Each chapter begins with a list of key points and ends with a checklist that can be used to assess progress in providing women's education. Chapter 7 lists some questions to help staff address the issues. Appendixes include a checklist of good practice for planning educational provision for women; a selected reading list of 47 references on women's education; and a list of resources and materials for women's education--self-help groups, child care, course materials for educational work with women, useful books for women learners, and guidelines for good practice in women's education.
