Students awarded Qualified Teacher Status need to “Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment” (DfES, 2012). According to a review by EPP (2004), Initial Teacher Education (ITE) is a crucial focus for action in the area of behaviour management as it provides a unique opportunity to establish the foundations for effective practice. Under jurisdiction, the United Kingdom Government has the responsibility to provide free, compulsory education for all primary aged children allowing children to reach the best of their abilities achieving their fullest potential (United Nations, 1989). I believe it is therefore the responsibility of all teachers to keep updated with current research to provide each and every child they teach, the best possible positive and safe engaging learning environments that they can. I believe that as a teacher you are not only a provider of knowledge but also a role model for a child.
A paraprofessional is a certified teacher aide assigned to a classroom or specific group of students to assist with learning. Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade classrooms should be required to be appointed a certified paraprofessional to ensure that all students get the proper educational reinforcement necessary. A certified paraprofessional is able to help any student, in any type of learning situation. Many are placed in classrooms to help students that have learning disabilities. These disabilities can range from dyslexia to autism, to physical disabilities that effect the learning accomplishments of the student.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life. The EYFS seeks to provide: • quality and consistency in all early years settings, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind; • a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly; • partnership working between practitioners and with parents and/or carers; • equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported. The EYFS specifies requirements for learning and development and for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare. The learning and development requirements cover: • the areas of learning and development which must shape activities and experiences (educational programmes) for children in all early years settings; • the early learning goals that providers must help children work towards (the knowledge, skills and understanding children should have at the end of the
Visiting a Early childcare and education center showed me there's a lot more than just babysitting or watching kids. when you enter into the Early child care and Education field you are educating, supporting, being responsible for children and loving them like they are your own. Learning about the importance of knowing as much about every childs family and community around them is a great way to become and have a great daycare. Because young childrenís lives are so embedded in their families and communities, and because research indicates that successful early childhood education depends upon partnerships with families and communities, early childhood professionals need to thoroughly understand and apply their knowledge in this area.

Early Childhood Education Programs Amanda Daugherty ECE 312 Rhonda Taylor August 13, 2012 Early Childhood Education Programs Teaching in a classroom is more then just standing in front of a class telling kids what to do it is about coming up with a plan and putting into action to help the students. When coming up with a plan you need to look at a vision statement, mission statement, and a philosophy statement. In order for every one to know you are reasoning for teaching and what you stand for. In this we are going to learn what each of these are and how they work in a teaching plan. Vision statement: is what you see for the future of your company.
Unit CU1533 Context and principles for early years provision * EYFS is mandatory in all companies and settings which provide early years education. It includes some learning and development requirements as well as safeguarding and welfare. Ofsted is the company who comes out to inspect the setting and deals with the quality and standards of provision to get a good application of the EYFS. Every child in the setting deserves the best possible outcome in their life with a support which helps them do this and develop their abilities; therefore the EYFS has some basic principles to help do this: * Every child is unique and different * Positive and good relationships are important for the independence of a child * Children should be enabling their environment, which will provide them with experiences of good learning and development. * Each and every child is different so each child has a different development and learning.
Describe what your role, responsibilities and boundaries would be as a teacher in terms of the teaching/training cycle. The teacher’s role, responsibilities and boundaries are permanently changing, evolving and being assessed in order to give the best possible learning experience to all students. Using the teaching/training cycle can benefit your personal development if you refer to and use its principles. The first stage of the cycle is Identify needs, this begins with the initial assessment where we can determine the learners needs and the correct course for them to achieve. We use a quickscan, and VAK test which helps to determine the learner style, (Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic).

The government also introduced Skills for Life in 2001 which is a strategy to improve adult literacy and numeracy skills. Other services available include; “Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) services have a pivotal role to play in delivering the Skills Strategy. They promote the benefits of learning, help individuals to address and overcome the barriers to learning, and support them in making realistic and well informed choices.” (The National Policy Framework and Action Plan, 2012) You also have student services, advice and guidance, teaching assistants, financial aid, etc. All of these will help to give everybody an equal opportunity to access the same level of learning experience. It’s also equally important to know your own limitations and know when and where to access support both for yourself and your
Those principles are: stronger accountability for results, increased flexibility and local control, expanded options for parents, and emphasis on teaching qualifications and methods. In order to make sure that each student is provided the best education achievable, the NCLB focuses on what a student should be learning (academic content standards), how well they should be learning (academic achievement standards), and whether a school is teaching all students successfully (state assessments). Each state defines what all children should not only know, but also be able to do in order to be considered “proficient.” States define proficiency based on academic content standards and academic achievement standards in reading, language arts, mathematics, and science (NCLD Public Policy Staff, 2009). Schools must show that they have effectively taught their students with the use of state assessment tests. The No Child Left Behind Act mandates that students with disabilities be included in these state assessment tests.
