Unit 301 Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults Outcome 1 Understand the principles of developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults In order for us to create good relationships with children and young people good effective communication is essential. When communicating with young people we need to think about our approach to them and how we respond to them. When good positive relationships have been formed there is more likely to be important information communicated between students and their support. If we communicate effectively young people will learn good communication themselves and will understand what is expected of them. When communicating we should think about our choice of words, body language, eye contact, listening and how we respond.
Unit 209 Support children and young people behaviour How you could be an effect role model to children and young people In your placement in the school I believe I could be an effective role model by setting a good example to the children I work with. As studies have shown, children learn more from copying behaviour around them, rather than just being told what to do. Children are mostly influenced by teachers, parents, friends and support workers. All the adults should be aware of their own behaviour and mannerism, and the effect could have on the children. Children can pick up behaviour and attitudes from adults from around them .For this reason, I feel my appearance must always be presentable and my clothes should be appropriate to wear in a school setting.
I believe the two most important influences on the development of self-concept and self-esteem are family and culture. Family has a great influence on how we see ourselves and what we choose to display about ourselves to others.

Therefore, if our family places a great deal of emphasis on education and its importance, we focus on getting good grades more than we focus on our athletic or artistic abilities, and may include intelligent as an attribute when describing ourselves to other people.
To successfully fur fill the requirements I as the adult will have to provide and make resources accessible so that I can interact with the children and observe and reflect on each of the child’s learning experiences. By doing this I will be able to see what the children enjoy doing and how I can keep the child’s attention and concentration. To use the child centred approach you will have to look at every child as an individual with different strengths learning styles and interests as well as adapting to children who have learning difficulties or disabilities, to achieve this I will have to research their
Unit CYP36 – Working together for the benefit of children and young people 1.1 Explain the importance of multi agency working and integrated working. When children are growing up they may require the use of a range of services, depending on their needs and support requirements. It is important for the services involved in each individual young person to work together to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people. This is multi agency working and it is an effective way of supporting not only young people but also their families. The bringing together of practitioners and professional from different areas provides an integrated way of working and aims to provide support to children and young people earlier to ensure they meet the Every Child Matters outcomes.
There is nothing more concrete than life itself. Social studies is one such subject in the curriculum which objective is to teach life. The most important lesson children can learn in today’s society is how to live with their peers and people in general. Social studies through proper execution at the early childhood level it is more ideal for a child to start understanding the norms and values of society especially in small social entities like the home, this being the first institution, the classroom and the wider society.

I have learned first-hand of the effect on people’s achievements and behavior from other’s attitudes and expectations. Developing a cultural content rich and diverse curriculum is key in developing student’s abilities to consider alternate perspectives and ways of thinking.

Education is a elemental human right and essential for all other human rights.

The thought process behind developing all of this was to provide schools with a design for learning that was productive and positive for children and teachers alike.
