Britain's famous overseas civil services - the Colonial Administrative Service, the Indian Civil Service and the Sudan Political Service - no longer exist as a major and sought-after career for Britain's graduates. In this detailed study the history of each service is presented within the framework of the need to administer an expanding empire. Close attention is paid to the methods of recruitment and training and to the socio-educational background of the overseas administrators as well as to the nature of their work. The prestigious incumbents of Government House are revealingly examined. The impact of decolonisation on overseas officials and the kinds of 'second careers' which they took up are documented. This authoritative narrative history is enlivened by recourse to Service lore and anecdotes.
Considering the 21st-century children's characteristics, teachers need to realize the importance and necessity of educational technology integration, and understand how to use technology to facilitate student-centered instruction and achieve meaningful outcomes. Given educational technology effectiveness, impractical and insufficient curricula for pre-service teachers, and current inflexible conditions for in-service teachers, teacher education colleges need to provide pre-service teachers with practical activities using educational technologies prior to their teaching career. This will encourage new generation learners to learn with technology. This book, therefore, provides ideas which learning contents, practices, and knowledge-acquisition processes, best support pre-service teachers to improve necessary educational ICT knowledge and skills for their future teaching. This analysis should be especially useful to professionals in Educational Technology field, or anyone else who may be involved with developing curricula for teacher education course.

This is now a standard part of managerial thinking and there is no escape from promotion, whether in the City, government, the Civil Service, academia, the media. Wherever hierarchies exist leads only to failure and an eventual shunting into corporate oblivion.This satirical classic explains why the human race is lost in a pit of economic, administrative and academic inefficiency. Most of us, whether the work experience placement or the Oxbridge fast-track career prospect, are doomed to ultimately end what seemed to be a glittering, dynamic career in humiliating mediocrity (obviously anyone reading this, and my boss, are exempt). However, a deviously cunning strategy (requiring both diligence and a talent for lies) can avert the unwanted promotion and preserve your dignity.Laurence J. Peter spent most of his working life teaching in universities where he made a lifelong study of teacher incompetence. Raymond Hull is a playwright and poet, whose articles have appeared in 'Esquire' and 'Punch' among others.

SS-Obersturmbannführer Otto Skorzeny became a legend in his own time. 'Hitler's favourite commando' acquired a reputation as a man of daring, renowned for his audacious 1943 mission to extricate Mussolini from a mountain-top prison. Skorzeny's influence on special operations doctrine was far-reaching and long-lasting - in 2011, when US Navy SEALs infiltrated Pakistan to eliminate Osama Bin Laden, the operational planning was influenced by Skorzeny's legacy. Yet he was also an egoist who stole other men's credit (including for the seminal rescue of Mussolini), brave and resourceful but also an unrepentant Nazi and a self-aggrandizing hogger of the limelight.Stuart Smith draws on years of in-depth research to uncover the truth about Skorzeny's career and complex personality. From his background as a student radical in Vienna, to his bloody service with the Waffen-SS on the Eastern Front, his surprise rebirth as a commando, and his intriguing post-war career and mysterious fortune, this book tells Otto Skorzeny's story in full - warts and all - for the first time.

TVET personnel is the backbone of any advanced TVET system. Therefore, in most ASEAN member countries the further advancement of TVET personnel is identified as a high priority. This study provides a comparative analysis of the current state of TVET personnel development in five ASEAN countries – Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam – exploring promising areas for further action. The investigation addresses the following key questions:1. What are typical forms of pre-service and in-service training in the region? What different kinds of career development paths are available?2. How is TVET personnel understood and categorised within the classifications of TVET teachers, TVET school management and in-company trainers? What are differences and similarities between the different classifications of TVET personnel?3. How is the demand for TVET personnel quantified in the ASEAN member states? Are the institutional settings and national framework conditions well prepared for the challenges in pre- and in-service training? 4. What are conclusions and recommendations for national TVET systems and TVET delivery in a national and regional context?5. What good practices and lessons learned regarding TVET personnel development in the ASEAN member states can be concluded and used for transfer of knowledge?
