As a teacher, one of the main roles is to motivate your learners to develop their ability and aspiration to learn. Some may read about delivering training and facilitating learning , but in reality a teacher does much more than that. A teaching role is not just about teaching your subject or preparing learners for assessment. The focus of a teaching role relates very much to inspiring learners to change and develop their personal, social and professional skills to the best of their ability. In this respect, the ultimate aim is to enable learners to understand how to take responsibility for their own development.
• Assessment activity - to determine this, the method could be assessorled like completing questioning or student-led like gathering evidence of competence. • Assessment discussion and feedback - an explanation to my students, a breakdown of their achievements and feedback. • Reviewing their progress - an overview, update and amend if necessary, until my students have full understand of the lesson. During this process, progress is recorded throughout all aspects of the assessment cycle. 1 UNIT 012 Principles of assessment in lifelong learning Furthermore the assessment could be formal (with constraints and validation of knowledge) or informal (any time by oral questions to know how much learning is taking place) depending on area being assessed.
This will ensure that every student has the highest possible chance of success. • Plan and design The roles here is to be an organiser and researcher. It's a teacher’s responsibility to plan and design a course in such a way as to ensure that it meets the specific needs of the learners. Some courses are constrained by the subject of the material and can only be delivered in a certain manner. Following a syllabus becomes essential as it enables the teacher to map the learning outcomes, and the aims
Promoting Inclusion Equality And Diversity Within Learners Theory 3 As a tutor my aim is for the students to gain competence in and a full understanding of the subject. In order for students to do this it is important for the tutor to be mindful of the issues concerning equality, diversity and Inclusion. In terms of equality and diversity the relevant factors we must be sensitive to when teaching are disability, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity and race, age, religious beliefs and economic and social needs of the students. The diverse backgrounds and experiences of individual students are what make teaching so exciting and challenging. The tutor needs to employ a number of strategies to promote inclusive learning to ensure that all the students are involved in the learning process.
In this write-up, I will seek to explain the ways in which I could establish ground rules with learners, which strengthens behaviour and respect for others. In doing this, I will be explaining what ground rules are and why they are necessary. How best they can be established and also ensure that students take ownership of rules by putting responsibility on them. Ground rules can be defined as terms which govern the working relationship between the school/teacher and its learners. According to Jo Budden “good classroom management depends a lot on how you establish ground rules at the beginning of the course”.
Therefore it is essential that teachers develop their educational philosophy and their educational goals before making the big step from being a student to being a teacher. It highlights and acknowledges the importance of social interactions between students and teachers as well as the roles that each plays in ensuring a successful educational experience which concludes that their philosophy on education is based on the concept of sharing of

When assessing an ELL students’ performance, there must be group work that will be close to the real world like problem solving and personal communication. The English language development is monitored overtime by the teacher’s observations and the student’s self-assessments. The assessments are used at every level of the learning process. Both the teacher and student will benefit from the initial results and the ongoing
Not only will the diversity of our learners be valued but we must promote equality in all aspects of our role as a teacher or facilitator. We must understand the boundaries set to allow us to refer learners to other professionals were there is a need and know to whom they should be referred when the need arises. . It is vitally important that we, as teachers maintain and develop a safe and nurturing environment in which our learners can, not only learn new skills but develop appropriate behaviour and respect for others. Reece and Walker (2000 p5) says that “A programme where the contents is carefully derived from an analysis of the student’s personal, social and /or vocational needs ,and which is implemented by you in such a controlled and organised manner that the student is almost certain to learn, and is aware when the learning has taken place.” 1.1 As a company delivering both construction training and foundation learning we take the “Health and Safety at Work Act “(1974) into consideration every day.
