Explains the boundaries between the teaching role
and other professioinal roles and own
responsibilities in relation to other professionals.
(2.1 & 2.2)

Within this assignment i will explain what i

believe the roles and responsibilities of a

teacher and possible boundaries which i may

come up against.Where possible I will link

it to my own personal experiencesand knowledge.

I will attempt to describe teaching roles both

related and non related as much as i can, i will

also make references to the 6 areas contained

within the professional standards for teachers

tutors and trainers in the life long learning

sector and also to the teaching and learning

cycle.

I believe further education teaching can be

split into two sections,a teachers role and the

teacher related roles. From my experience teaching

roles will be taken on by assessors and Tutors

where as the teacher related roles will mainly be

handled by administration staff, and senior

management. A teachers role can be referred to as

“a role which contains limitied teaching

responsibilities and a role which represents the

full range of responsibilities performed by those

who are expected to attain the status of a

qualified teacher” In my opinion the

responsibility of a teacher/tutor isto nurture any

person from someone who knows nothing about the

trade and turning them into someone who has both

the practicaland theoretical skills to be a

bricklayer with a National Vocational Qualification

(NVQ) level 3 atthe end of their apprenticeship.

But the responsibility of staff who occupy the

teacher related role will be taking care of things

like filing,ensuring paperwork is upto date

and correct thus complying with the data protection

act 1998,and making sure there are no complications

with regards toplacements/funding for learners.

Entry Requirements a teacher/trainer will be

required to work a range of information sources

Therefore,during the selection process you may be

required to undertake an initial assessment in

Numeracy and an initial assessment in Literacy.

To be accepted onto an Apprenticeship programme

at level 2 you will have to achieve Numeracy Level

1, and Literacy Level 1 to start with.You will

also be required to attend an interview, during

which your suitability,commitment and interest

will be determined.You should bring with you to

theinterview any evidence you have of previous

academic achievement.You may also wish to present

other documentation that supports your application

This can include evidence of other activities that

you have participated in, sports, hobbies, work

experience etc.To me different levels your learners

may be at and you can hopefully you can then get a

better idea as to what stage you should start your

teachings from, These assessments should be

continuous throughout the apprenticeship so you

can check that learners are progressing in the

areas thatthey should be. If not the correct

measures can then be put into place to help them

catch up with others I understand that every

teacher/tutor has contractual obligations to abide

by in regards to what ever the programme they are

teaching, these will be a guideline from your

employer but also you have a rather strict code to

work to from awarding body such as Constructive

Awards Alliance (CAA) or City and Guilds (C&G).

Every tutor/teacher will have the same contractual

obligations to abide with these but they may vary

with your employer as everyone likes to put there

own mark on apprenticeshipsThe teacher related

roles are to include things like checking all

documentation and information on students is

correct and upto date,ensuring students are

registered with the correct learning bodies so

there are no complications when starting/...
