PTLLS students often find it challenging to approach their studies. Some are returning to study after a long break and others have no previous experience of study at this level. This text is an accessible guide to studying for the NEW PTLLS Award. It begins by looking at how to prepare for study and taught sessions, and goes on to cover self-study, including research skills referencing and reflective practice. Guidance on presenting work and tips for presentations are included. This second edition has been updated for the NEW Award and includes new information on reflection and e-portfolios.
