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.
In this write-up, I will seek to explain the ways in which I could establish ground rules with learners, which strengthens behaviour and respect for others. In doing this, I will be explaining what ground rules are and why they are necessary. How best they can be established and also ensure that students take ownership of rules by putting responsibility on them. Ground rules can be defined as terms which govern the working relationship between the school/teacher and its learners. According to Jo Budden “good classroom management depends a lot on how you establish ground rules at the beginning of the course”.
Support Learning Activities Be able to contribute to planning learning activities Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities. 5 1.1 Planning, teaching and evaluating follow a cycle which gives structure to the learning process. The diagram below shows this: Evaluating Evaluating Planning Planning Teaching Teaching There are three different types of planning for teachers, short, medium and long term. Depending on the teaching assistant’s role, as a teaching assistant we are more likely to attend a medium or short term planning meeting so that everyone is aware of the area of learning that will be focused on, while the planning takes place.

This is different from selection – though information gained through the selection process should be useful during the assessment. ●Initial assessment is a process, not a single event and uses a range of methods which help prospective employers and providers to find out about learners. This process helps learners to find out about themselves and their programme (what they will learn, and how). The outcomes of initial assessment help to inform the individual learning plan (ILP). In fact, it would be difficult to supply all the information needed for an ILP without carrying out a thorough initial assessment.
Keeping records is a very important reflexive tool for both teachers and learners in the educational setting. Accurate records taken throughout a course enables both teacher and students to continually reassess the effectiveness of the teaching/learning relationship by giving an ongoing measure against which to view learning objectives. Records indicate whether pupils have learnt what has been taught and are making sufficient progress with the course; who needs more help or is ready for more extensive work by assessing better or worse progress than expected; and whether teachers need to refine any aspects of their teaching by assessing successes or shortcomings where teaching needs to be strengthened. Attendance data taken on a close protection course gives an idea of where students may fall behind with learning outcomes through non attendance. Identifying non attendance could indicate a problem external to the teaching setting which may benefit from referral to other professionals or could point to students’ dissatisfaction with the teaching style which could be addressed by reassessing the teaching methods used in order to promote more inclusive practice.
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.
UNIT 2 - Support learning activities 1.1 Describe how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities. As a teaching assistant you will contribute with the teachers to planning, delivery and review of learning activities. As a teaching assistant time should be made to discuss and review pupils’ work with teachers, this can be formal or informal. Planning, teaching and evaluation follow a cycle which gives structure to the learning process. EVALUATING TEACHING - Supporting the teacher in delivering the plan with a child or group of children.
City & Guilds 7303 The Teaching Cycle [pic] As a teacher, our roles are varied but include: Planning Our responsibilities are: • To ensure that once the syllabus is known, a Scheme of Work is developed and lesson plans generated • To ensure the course structure and timetable are developed • To ensure that resources are planned • To ensure accommodation is suitable • To get to know our students and their needs • To ensure that our knowledge is up to date Boundaries with Planning There are limitations with planning, in that a Lecturer can only plan for what is known and there may be unexpected occurrences that have to be dealt with in the lesson. However, there also has to be an element
