It is through these supervision meetings that the supervisee is able to reflect on their own practice, drawing from active counselling sessions, the practitioners own thoughts, feelings and reactions and is able to examine these and develop/adapt strategies for client work. Supervision aims to be a supportive and educative process in the application of counselling theory and techniques. Effective supervision is tailored to the student's level of knowledge, confidence and increasing ability. For example, beginning students are normally provided with high levels of structure and support, whereas more advanced students receive a more consultative supervision. In entering into supervision it is common practice to agree a supervision contract which outlines an agreement under which the supervision takes place.
This essay will discuss my perception of the role of a teacher in the lifelong learning sector. It will cover a teacher’s roles, responsibilities and boundaries. It will also evaluate different methods of assessment and discuss approaches to embedding inclusive learning and teaching into learning activities. I have broken the essay down into several headings: Roles, responsibilities and boundaries Teaching and learning methods Assessment methods Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Functional skills in the lifelong learning sector.

I also use oral questioning as a direct form of assessing a learners knowledge against certain criteria. Within my subject area other assessment takes place such as written work in the learners portfolio, this is also used in initial assessment in the form of multiple choice questioning to ascertain a learners level of understanding and knowledge before they start a course. Accreditation of prior learning is also used to assess a learners level at initial assessment, this would then be checked with assessment, usually oral questioning, throughout the course. This is accompanied by interviewing on a personal basis in the form of a review. Following that formative assessment takes place by
Keeping it honest and non-judgemental and by remaining impartial. Also by keeping a diary or journal over a period of time that you choose to set aside, record about experiences that you choose to focus on. You can try working on it with your colleagues, use appraisals or mentoring and by using support tools to help you reflect on significant incidents from lessons or activities. Use peers and experienced colleagues to help you review your actions, capture what you have learned from your experiences, and demonstrate your learning and its impact in the lessons. Constant evaluation refocuses your thinking on your existing knowledge and helps generate new knowledge and ideas.
Secondly, the argument is made that if behaviourism is to be used in an informed and ethical way then an in depth understanding of its theoretical underpinnings and application as a learning theory is essential. To this end the historical development, critique and adaptation of behaviourism is outlined in order to develop this understanding within the wider coaching community. Finally, the argument is put forward that only through adopting an integrated approach to coaching practice development can the coaching discipline move forward upon a sound theoretical base. The areas that will establish this theoretical base are also highlighted in the future research that needs to be undertaken. Introduction In this paper, I outline the potential significance of behaviourism and its impact on developing effective coaching practice.
I believe a counselor service as a guide to self and others. The role that might be challenging to me would be the consultant role. Even though consultant and counselling have so many similarities, I just feel more challenge with consultant. Why, because it is very difficult role to betray. As our text states, a consultant must be particularly careful to maintain appropriate boundaries, I believe with consultant once must possessive certain traits such as being an experts that can handle the problem.
You should discuss the choice of topic and an outline of your submission with your line manager and/or your tutor. The choice of topic must allow you to demonstrate achievement of assessment criteria from the units studied. It should not be a very large or complex topic, but it must offer scope for planning change – perhaps it is a change in working methods, customer service or working relationships. Write a report to your line manager about a change that is needed which could be implemented in the near future. The 'nominal' word count for this
Common Barriers to Effective Teams Challenges of Knowing Where to Begin At the start of a project, team members may be at a loss as to how to begin. Also, they may have reached the end of a task but are unable to move on to the next step or put the task to rest. Floundering often results from a lack of clear goals, so the remedy is to go back to the team’s mission or plan and make sure that it is clear to everyone. Team leaders can help move the team past floundering by asking, “What is holding us up? Do we need more data?
It is essential that your purposes are clear. By breaking down your question into different topics or problems, it enables you to simplify your research and find relevant information that assists with your needs. Without simplification of your topic, any primary or secondary research may become difficult to obtain and could result in unnecessary research which may inflict on your time management process. * Explain what processes you
