Reading List - PTLLS

Below is a short reading list of resources covering a variety of formats. This list is designed to be used by North Warwickshire and Hinckley College (NWHC) students on the 'Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector' (PTLLS) course.

Course outline: An overview of entry requirements and course content.

PTLLS overview: PTLLS information direct from the City and Guilds website.

Moodle: The college Moodle page for teacher training courses. Includes PTLLS resources provided by the course department. Student username and password required.

Study Skills for PTLLS: This up-to-date text book provides PTLLS students with help and assistance whilst studying the course. It is available to loan from the college library (copies held at both Nuneaton and Hinckley campuses).

Tutor Training: This site is a collection of PTLLS resources provided by a PTLLS tutor. Please note that this site/tutor has no connection with NWHC, and that it is the site of a personal individual. This site should be used for guidance only as the quality of the site's content has not yet been verified by NWHC.

Remember, the college library or the teacher training department will be more than happy to assist you with any resources.


**This post was prepared during a practical exercise for a job interview. The task was to construct and publish an online reading list within a time frame of 30 minutes. I decided to focus on the PTLLS course, as I had recently completed this and am familiar with the necessary resources. This task not only incorporates the skills needed to compile a reading list, but also demonstrates familiarity with online tools. And yes - thank you for asking! - I did get the job! (More on that in future posts.)**
