“Summarise the key aspects of current legislative requirements and codes of practice relevant to your subject and the type of organisation within which you would like to work”. I work as an Assessor /Trainer for a medium size training company. As an assessor I have to ensure that I am aware of key generic legislation and stay up to date with legislation relating to my current role. Key legislation fall under the European “6 pack” which includes:-

Health and Safety at work act 1974
Control of substances harmful to health (COSHH) Regulations (2002) •Manual Handling operations regulations (1992)
(RIDDOR) Reporting of injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (1995)

There are many more legislations that I have to be aware of while teaching. It is important that I keep up to date with these legislations and part of my responsibility is to make sure that they are being adhered to and I know what procedure to follow if this is not the case. Legislation incorporating human rights include

Equality act (2010) combining previous legislation on diversity issues. •Disability discrimination act (DDA) encouraging full inclusion of all learners. •Freedom of information act (2000)
Data protection act (1998 amended 2005)
I first came across this legislation from my employment in the military where I had cause to go into the equal opportunities advisor role. Further legislation that I am aware of is ‘every child matters’ (Children Act 2004) and Safeguarding Vulnerable group’s act 2006. Although I am not currently involved in the teaching of minors I am working with persons that could potentially be classed as vulnerable I.e. females, and ethnic minorities. Every Child Matters is a set of reforms supported by the Children Act 2004. Its aim is for every child, whatever their background or circumstances, to have the support they need to: •be healthy

stay safe
enjoy and achieve
make a positive contribution
