Part A (1.1, 1.2,1.3, 4.1, 4.2)
Task 1: Research the key aspects of legislation, regulatory requirements and codes of practice relating to your own area of education and training.*
Use this research to prepare a brief presentation for your peers. It should include your analysis of your own role/s and responsibilities and, in particular, the relationships and boundaries between your own teaching role and other professional roles.
Your tutor will provide written feedback on the presentation techniques used so make use of the opportunity for a mini-teaching observation.
Evidence: presentation slides, tutor’s feedback on presentation
□ Roles, e.g. teacher, trainer, coach, tutor, mentor, instructor, assessor.
□ Responsibilities, e.g. enforcement of organisation policies and procedures, preparation and management of learning, supporting learning, assessment and record keeping, working with others, developing own practice.
□ Legislation and regulations, e.g current government legislation, equality and diversity, health and safety, data protection, professional or vocational standards, awarding organisation requirements, organisation codes of practice.
□ Personal boundaries, e.g. skills, confidence, experience, time, resources, empathy, other commitments.
□ Professional boundaries, e.g. job description, team roles and responsibilities, management structures, lines of communication, student support and referral.
Task 2: Reflective activity: why you think it is important – and part of your responsibility – to promote appropriate behaviour and respect for others and ways you would go about promoting equality and value diversity through your approaches to education and training.

Part D (Criteria covered 3.2,3.5, 4.3, 5.4, 5.1, 5.3, 5.6, 5.5,5.7, 6.3, 6.5, 6.4, 6.6, 7.2)
Task 7: Design a minimum of THREE teaching and learning plans to be observed by your tutor or subject specialist
Task 8: Submit 3 assessor’s observations for the 3 observed sessions (as per the lesson plans above).
Part E (3.2 (unit 21 AC 3.2), 3.3 (unit 21 AC 3.3), 3.4, 5.6, 6.1, 6.2
Task 9: For EACH observed session produce a written evaluation to explain how own planning meets the individual needs of learners and ways in which teaching and learning plans can be adapted to meet the individual needs of learners. Include enough information to make it clear that you understand the teaching and learning processes that have been taking place. (Approximately 1000 words) – 3 Self Evaluations
Develop and include in your teaching practice portfolio specific examples of how you have (or would have) adapted session plans for a minimum of TWO contrasting learners, or a particular group of learners – in the Self Evaluations above.
Include in the teaching practice portfolio two examples of resources, including technology where appropriate, to show how you have adapted an original resource to meet the different needs of individual learners – two resources (include power points)
One resource – adapted to a need of a learner
In the self evaluation – use Kolb and Bloom
Task 10: GENERIC - Produce a table listing a minimum of 10 different types of assessment and against each type briefly explain the purpose and the assessment outcome (include an introduction on definition of assessment and the types of assessment. Then add the table on assessment methods, their purposes, and assessment outcome).
□ Purposes, e.g. awarding body requirements, vocational standards, formative or summative, criterion or norm-referencing, initial diagnostic, setting goals, establish level of skill, sum of knowledge, demonstration of understanding, check-and-correct.
□ Types, e.g. written examination, test, multiple choice, assignment, project, practical observation, portfolio, self-assessment, reflection, verbal, witness statement, professional discussion, e-assessment or e-portfolio.
Task 11: As part of the three observed teaching practice sessions, select and include an example of at least ONE different assessment type and method for each session – 3 assessor’s observations
For EACH assessment activity provide evidence to show how:
• it meets the needs of your students and
• it produces assessment evidence that is valid, reliable, sufficient, authentic and current.
Task 12: REFLECTIVE (from task 10) - Use research to help your understanding or assessment, and referring to the practical examples from your teaching practice observations, provide a written report to analyse the effectiveness of the assessment methods, used in your specialist area, in meeting the individual needs of your learners - (Approximately 1000 words)
Discuss about the assessment tools in task 10. Explain how each is effective, can be improved and met the need of a particular learner.
□ Effectiveness, e.g. flexibility of internally set and marked assessment, opportunities for check- and-correct, alternative technologies; standardised, e.g. between learners, across organisation, locally, nationally
□ Individual needs, e.g. appropriate level and content, reflecting specific needs, alternative methods, negotiated, opportunities to practice assessment, appropriate timing and context, re-testing or resubmission, additional observations.

Task 13: Undertake a piece of individual research into different theories of communications and the impact on learning. You could include Piaget, Bernstein and Vygotsky as starting places for your research.
Use your individual research to produce a written report, using examples taken from your own teaching practice, to analyse the benefits and limitations of the communication methods you use.
As communication is not just about verbal and non-verbal communications include other forms of communications you use in teaching – such as the different communication media used in own area of specialism, e.g. written, white board, VLE, video.
What is communication?
Role of communication in teaching and learning
Theories that can be used in communication
