Introduction In this assignment I am going to cover the role of the teacher, the responsibilities that they have in the education and training environment. I will also discuss how to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment for your learners. To end the essay I will discuss the relationship teachers have with other professionals who work in the education and training arena. The teaching role and responsibilities in education and training 1.1 Explain the teaching role and responsibilities in education A teacher adopts many roles within the learning environment and has many responsibilities. One of the key responsibilities I feel for a teacher is to provide information, wisdom.
Formative Assessment in tracking learner progress Formative assessment (assessment for learning) is engaged during a course or programme. This is the type of assessment used and it allows teachers to adjust targets and objectives to suit the student until they develop skills and become more confident. Formative assessment is usually informal (Formative informal) and can take place at any time during the teaching and learning process. Feedback from formative assessment will be beneficial to both student and teacher as it not only allows the student to recognize their success and look at areas for development but it allows the teacher to evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching and look to improve on future sessions. Formative assessment is often seen as being motivational as it can be seen as a review rather than an assessment.

Planning • Current influences on the planning and provision of learning opportunities. • Importance of planning and providing learning opportunities to meet children’s diverse needs. • Plans of curriculum activities • How planned curriculum can promote learning Role of practitioner • The role of the practitioner in meeting children’s learning needs • Reflective account how a practitioner can support the learning needs of the children. After the practitioner know the information and understands it, there next role is too use it to meet the children’s learning needs.
Inclusive learning should promote positive behaviour and conduct. A teacher needs to recognise that learner comes with different learning styles and needs. Maslow stated unless certain need are met the learner cannot progress. Malsow ‘s hierarchy of needs theory is: Learners needs have to to be met in order for leaners to be involved and focused on their learning. For individual learning styles to be met, within a good learning sessions a teacher will ensure he/she takes a multi-sensory approach to teaching, this way each learner can work 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. Teachers can do this by planning and preparing teaching and learning activities that take account of the needs and well-being of individual learners as well as groups of learners. Some key aspects of a role as a teacher may be: carrying out initial and/or diagnostic assessments; clear communication with your learners, other professionals and stakeholders; promoting appropriate behaviour and respect for others; identifying and meeting individual learners’ needs; being aware of the support mechanisms available; being organised; being reflective, which means learning from successes as well as mistakes. What are my responsibilities as a teacher? As a teacher, my primary responsibility is to ensure that learners are enrolled onto the correct course, in terms of meeting their needs, abilities and aspirations.
So any learning plan for this student would be centred around this goal, especially self-directed learning and placement provision. Specific learning needs can be identified and then addressed by the teacher, for example different coloured handouts for a dyslexic student, or by student support, for example a sign language interpretor in the class for a deaf learner. Prior to my lessons, I speak to the students' course tutor about any student individual needs that I need to be aware of and whether my chosen resources are appropriate for the students that I will be teaching. Prior knowledge and skills can be built upon with the ILP, which can help target areas for extra learning, such as specific or embedded numeracy skills, and develop areas of strength for the student, for example knowledge of local and government policy within Health and Social Care. Reece & Walker (2006) state that a focus on retention rates is increasing, so identifying the needs of learners prior to a course beginning will help the college to assess which students are likely to be able to complete the course.
Different people adjust to different strategies. Most people adjust to more than one strategy. We just need to identify which ones through assessment. How the Awareness of Learning Strategies Influence Teaching and Learning It is important for teachers to understand what a student is going through in their process of learning new information. If you know the learning style of the student, it is easier to convey the message you are trying to convey.
The teacher assistant and teacher should plan together so that you are clear from the outset what you will be doing and are given the opportunity to put forward your own ideas. In the case of teaching assistants who support individual pupils, this can be particularly beneficial since they will be able to identify any difficulties with planned activities at the earliest stages and will also know in advance if they will need to find particular resources b) Delivery: How a learning support practitioner would contribute on the delivery of a learning objective,
Danielle Gallagher Unit 303 Support learning activities Outcome 1 Contribute to planning learning activities 1.1 Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities Although the class teacher is primarily responsible to plan, deliver and review all learning activities for the class, a teaching assistant can work alongside the teacher and make contributions that can improve the teachers plan, alter the delivery to make it more effective for pupil attainment and extend the teachers initial review. “Planning, teaching and evaluation follow a cycle which gives structure to the learning process” and is vital in my role as a teaching assistant. I aim to describe how I aide the teacher to plan and deliver lessons and how I give feedback to the teacher about individual pupils, in order for the teacher make improvements in her planning and to be able to target individual children that are struggling. I will also give an example at the end to show how I effectively assisted in planning, delivery and the review of a lesson. Planning - the teacher will ask her staff to look over her planning and to give an opinion on it, if the staff feel there could be any improvements then they will tell the teacher.
The key strategic purpose of the teachers is to prepare lessons to impart information and make them as interesting as possible to keep children engaged and to promote learning by leading discussion and encourage participation. They must ensure the classroom environment is supportive for all learners. Teachers should prepare homework and assignments to assess learner’s progress and feed that back to both students and families. Support staff roles refers to any school employee allocated to assist administrators, teachers etc. to address special needs within the school.
