This new and exciting text is aimed at informal educators involved
in youth work, community work and adult education and health
promotion. The contributors explore the principles and practice of
informal education and focus, in particular, on the notion of
'working with' which is central to practice, in this sector. The
book argues for an approach which is relevant to a number of
professional fields and which focuses on a way of working rather
than upon a specific target group. The book looks at the role of an
educator in informal education and youth work settings.
Comprehensive and analytical, it looks at social, cultural and
political contexts of education. The authors discuss the practical
side of teaching from the setting, programme planning and
communication to activity-based work, one-to-one case work, formal
group work and managing the work load. Finally the book analyses
developing professional practice, the use of line management and
supervision, and evaluation of work.
