The textbook features include: tasks throughout, including those supporting M Level study; annotated further reading at the end of units; a glossary including abbreviations; and, a guide to writing successful assignments. The Companion Website resources include: additional units that independently focus on education in Wales and Northern Ireland; appendices explaining the implications of Every Child Matters and Safe Working Practice initiatives; unit summaries, key topics and further reading, highlighted in PowerPoint slides for lecturers; weblinks to useful resources for each unit; editable tables and figures from some units; sample units from this and "Starting to Teach in the Secondary School, 2nd Edition".
