Book Description

Developing Resilience in FE Teaching explores the essence of resilience and provides practical approaches for working in the Further Education sector. Emphasising the importance of reflection and self-growth, it outlines strategies to help teachers identify and deal with stress, using real-life case studies to exemplify key concerns.

This book is divided into three main sections: Part One identifies the sector’s needs and recognizes resilience as a key attribute for FE teachers to survive and thrive in the modern world, explores the importance of strength and positivity in both physical and mental health, and examines the many ways in which these contribute to the development of individual resilience; Part Two outlines a variety of practical strategies and approaches for teachers to utilise their experiences to construct resilience over time; and Part Three presents real-life scenarios of resilience-building from various professionals working in the sector.

Developing Resilience in FE Teaching synthesizes a wide range of current ideas and research to provide a practical and useful guide for FE teachers, and for those working in the FE sector. It serves as an important resource for teachers and equips them with the necessary skills to become resilient professionals in the modern workplace.
