Assignment 1 - Theory
1 Describe what your role, responsibilities and boundaries would be as a teacher in terms of the teaching training cycle.
I am tutoring adults to achieve an A1 qualification - qualifies the learners to assess an NVQ in the job and area of expertise that they are competent in. The teacher training cycle is divided into 5 parts and supports the tutors roles and responsibilities.
PLAN – Advertising the qualification. I advertise the qualification to schools in Newcastle-upon Tyne via Newsletters, e-mails to administration staff, letters to SENCO’s and by a memory key that is posted to school’s. A boundary would be lack of input for how and where the …show more content…
Varying the assessment methods to include all learning styles and in a non threatening format will support and encourage learners in completing them.
I will observe the learner several times during the A1 process as a requirement of the qualification and as an assessment tool. This will provide accurate and relevant information on how much the learner has learnt from the sessions and support that might be needed. The A1 learner will be attending assessor and standardisation meetings where they will be assessed as part of quality assurance for the qualification.
Boundaries that can occur are low attendance resulting in little written assessments and few observations. A tutor can support a learner when difficulties arise though the responsibility of attending sessions is ultimately down to the learner.
EVALUATION – a tutor must evaluate sessions to make sure that the learners are achieving the learning outcomes set, gaining knowledge and understanding about the qualification and being supported and challenged in the process. Evaluate using the teacher cycle again.
Plan – was the session suitable to the needs of the learners? Did the group meet the learning outcomes? Did I follow the timing set?
Preparing – did I arrive in time to set up the class and resources? Were the handouts clear and understandable? Was there enough resources?
Delivering – did I take into account different learning needs and styles? Did I recap regularly
