Product description

From the Back Cover

The comprehensive complete guide to the TAQA Award covering all units, written accessibly to support learners from all contexts with differing experience of training and assessments settings.

About the Author

Ann has been teaching, assessing and quality assuring in the further education and skills sector since 1983. She is a director of her own company Ann Gravells Ltd, an educational consultancy based in East Yorkshire. She specialises in teaching, training, assessment and quality assurance.

Ann holds a Masters in Educational Management, a PGCE, a Degree in Education, and a City & Guilds Medal of Excellence for teaching. She is a Fellow of the Society for Education and Training, and holds QTLS status.

Ann has been writing textbooks since 2006 which are mainly based on her own experiences as a teacher and the subsequent education of trainee teachers. She aims to write in plain English to help anyone with their role. She creates resources for teachers and learners such as PowerPoints and handouts for the assessment, quality assurance, and teacher training qualifications. These are available via her website: www.anngravells.com

Ann has worked for several awarding organisations producing qualification guidance, policies and procedures, and carrying out the external quality assurance of teaching, assessment and quality assurance qualifications.

She is a consultant to The University of Cambridge’s Institute of Continuing Education, Ofqual, and the awarding organisation Training Qualifications UK (TQUK).

Ann welcomes any comments from readers; please contact her via her website www.anngravells.com

Ann Gravells’ textbooks

The teaching, assessment and quality assurance qualification titles change over time. Ann has written books in the past which reflect these titles and has updated them when they have changed. However, the content of the qualifications and the job roles which teachers, assessors and quality assurers carry out remain very much the same.

Ann has now written three generic books aimed at covering all the teaching, assessment and quality assurance qualifications as well as the relevant job roles. It doesn’t matter what the qualification title might be called now or in the future or which awarding organisation offers it, these three books should meet the required content of them all.

  • Principles and Practices of Assessment (2015)
  • Principles and Practices of Quality Assurance (2016)
  • Principles and Practices of Teaching and Training (2017)

Ann’s first book Delivering Adult Learning was written in 2006 and was aimed at anyone taking the qualification of the same title. This book is no longer in print, but forged the beginning of her writing career and her aim of helping trainee teachers with their role.

Ann is the author of the following text books, many of which are now in new editions (listed here in alphabetical order). Details can be found on her website: www.anngravells.com/books

  • Achieving your Assessment and Quality Assurance Units (TAQA) (2014)

  • Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (2012)

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange presentation - cut off pages
By H Holden on 3 November 2021
When I opened this book initially I was sure that someone had been at it with a pair of scissors - for some strange reason the initial 18 pages seemed to have had their top section removed, and the starting point of the page was an inch lower than the remainder of the book. On further investigation on these pages the lower part of the pages were cut off, and text missing or only half showing - impossible to know if there are relevant facts missing. I'm not really sure how this book left the publishing house in this state for sale - and it did not say there was a problem with the copy in the information given. Little bit disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Going to get in touch with printer.....
By Drew Williams on 12 May 2021
Not very happy I bought this at the begging of last month along with another book that I have just finished. I picked this one to start reading and the first chapter has a big chunk missing from printing. Unfortunately I didn't look sooner.
