The ability to start at any point within the cycle allows the teacher to assess and improve a course on a continuing basis. The role, responsibilities and boundaries go much further than described above, There will always be new situations that often will require careful consideration in order to remain within boundaries and to ensure you will meet the needs of your learners. Foe example, there may be learners with financial difficulties and there would require directing to oThese are questions that will differentiate my role to that of other members of the organisation. These and other questions, when they come to the forefront will become part of the teaching/training cycle in order for the teacher to meet the varied needs of each learner in an ongoing process. The relationship between teacher and student is very specific and should be kept professional at all times, it is my aim to safeguard and protect my students and ensure that no form of abuse takes place.
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).
Area/subject of personal statement: Knowledge of how schools are organised in terms of roles and responsibilities Describe roles and responsibilities of: School governors Governors have a key role in decision-making and are expected to prepare for and attend meetings of the governing body and any committees of which they are a member. As well as supporting the school, governors need to ask challenging questions to be sure that the school is providing the best possible education. This role is often called ‘being a critical friend’. The governing body's main role is to help raise standards of achievement. It: • Is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community, • Plans the school's future direction, • Selects the head teacher, • Makes decisions on the school's budget and staffing, • Makes sure the national curriculum is taught, • Decides how the school can encourage pupil's spiritual, moral and social development , • Makes sure the school provides for all its pupils, including those with special needs, • Reviews pupil exclusions and deals with any cases of staff dismissal appeals.
Describe the roles, responsibilities and boundaries as a teacher in the teaching/training cycle Role, responsibilities and boundaries are evolving qualities within the teacher which are assessed and reflected upon using the teaching/training cycle; a cycle of assessment, planning and review. The main role of the teacher is to facilitate communication in such way that all students are encouraged to enter into wider debate surrounding the topic they have chosen. To ensure sessions’ aims and objectives are meaningful and applicable to students, the teaching role incorporates ongoing administration and assessment. Assessing varying learning styles within group and considering learner’s motivations and previous experiences helps identify various teaching methods that could be useful throughout the program. Sessions incorporating visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning styles ensure student’s have equal rights to learning and provide the opportunity to re-evaluate what is already known while exploring aims and objectives from a different perspective.
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
Unit 5 Continuing personal and professional practice. In this assignment I will explore and consolidate the theories and practices of reflective practice by providing a critical analysis of my approach to reflective practice within my own personal and professional development. I will then use my own learning journal to provide an analysis of my personal and professional development. Reflective practice is a key element of all teacher training programmes; in fact it is now a requirement of all teachers to reflect for CPD. The institute for learning states that: reflective practice – taking personal responsibility to improve professional practice through thinking about practice, discussion with colleagues and learners and taking appropriate action to improve – is required of all teachers (lifelong learning UK, 2009, P12).
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.
They like to inform the parents of things going on at the center, and in the government that concern the center. Having relationships with the families is important and they have very close ties with them. The philosophy the center runs by is the idea that a child’s education is one of the most important, if not the most important, aspects of his or her life. With this in mind, teachers are very influential characters. 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.
Review what your role, responsibilities and boundaries as a teacher would be in terms of the teaching/training cycle. Identifying needs When planning sessions for learners it is vital that we consider each individual learners needs and the needs of the organisation. As Petty states ‘ each learner is unique and has individual needs. If the needs of our learners are discovered and met, the chances of success are greatly increased.’ (Petty 2004: 496) In addition to this it is vital that teachers know the relevant member of staff to refer students to, and what policies and procedures the organisation has in place. This will aid the teacher in acquiring the right support for learners within their education.
Obtain my degree would allow me to achieve my goals in life. My degree is a stepping stone in my life it would allow me to become a teacher within the school district and not only preschool. It also shows my job that I’m serious about it; it allows me to receive pay raises and promotions within the company but we all know that without an education that goal is farfetched. I have learned to not look at returning
