Abstract

When embarking on a teacher training course, a trainee teacher is required to critically evaluate the role and responsibilities of the teacher in the Further Education (FE) and Skills sector in their first module, identifying key legislation, core values, skills and knowledge. This requires trainees to focus on the practical and theoretical challenges involved in planning and preparing to teach. This article is an examination of the current roles and responsibilities of the teacher in the FE and Skills Sector.
