Unit 301: Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults 1.1) Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. Effective communication is essential in order to work successfully with children parent’s and staff. It is important for teaching assistants to have the skills to listen and respond to the views of others. It is important to respect others by taking an interest on what they are saying through body language and sound of voice. By doing this you are creating a good example for pupils who will therefore learn from you on how to communicate positively with others.
THEORY ASSIGNMENT 3 – Explain how you would promote inclusion, equality and diversity with your current/future learners. Identify other points of referral available to meet the potential needs of learners. As a teacher, I must be aware of the students needs in order to promote equal opportunities and diversity and encourage an inclusive learning environment.

CHRIS PTLLS ROLES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND RELATIONSHIPS IN LIFE LONG LEARNING Roles, responsibilities, relationships and boundaries are evolving qualities within the teacher which are assessed and reflected upon using the teaching/training cycle; a cycle of assessment of needs, planning, facilitating, assessing and evaluating. The starting point for the teacher is to identify the needs of the student, an initial assessment together with previous education records will identify the student’s level of knowledge, and it will also give an accurate representation of the level of support they may need, highlighting any medical needs such as hearing or sight impairment. Identify strengths and weaknesses and find any transferrable skills the students may have. Teachers must facilitate opportunities for the students to learn, by planning lessons, having adequate materials and knowledge of the subject matter, delivering lessons which not only meet the needs of the students but also the requirements of the course. Keeping up to date in your chosen field, attending regular training, maintain continuous professional development and continuing high standards of work and conduct thus complying with legislation and organisational codes of practice.
By understanding the dynamic of these relationships, a teacher understands the development and learning of students and seeks opportunities to positively support not only their intellectual development, but also social and personal as well. Children are children. For the most part, their developmental patterns can be predicted. Understanding the different stages of development can give teachers insight to not only academic performance, but also behaviors. This paper will focus on the learning theory of adolescents, primarily middle school students.

In my job role, I work closely with the class teacher and full time teaching assistant. Each member of the team know and understand their own role in school, they should also know and understand the roles of others in their team and how they fit together to support the pupils. Good communication skills amongst one another are essential to enable us to provide the highest quality of learning and support to the pupils in the classes where I volunteer. In our team, we offer support to one another and discuss the developments and achievements of the individual pupils. We share information and contribute ideas for future
For example I find it essential to discuss the day’s lesson plan and targets with my class teacher. This gives me clear guidance and an objective when working with pupils, of what support I need to give in order to achieve the day’s targets. In the school environment, I am aware that I am acting as a role model to the children. How I communicate with colleagues, parents and pupils will reflect on how children will then communicate. It is important to adapt the way I communicate, because different audiences require different communication styles so that I can be understood easily.
In conclusion, a multicultural classroom requires various teaching methods for students’ success. In order to successfully teach a class like such, teaching materials must be modified to involve and recognize each student’s culture. When a teacher shows interest in student’s heritage and culture, they are able to gain their students trust. This encourages and motivates students to learn in a diverse

Therefore one may utilize different Educational Psychology perspectives in accomplishing this task.
