Within my work as a Family Learning tutor you cannot pick out easily which are the most important ones because all acts we have been given on the list can be “ticked” for the subject I am teaching, which is “Play&Learn”.
The first thing I have to be aware of is the risk assessment when I come in the room in which my teaching takes place. I need to make sure that all the electric sockets are safe and that no little things which could be swallowed by babies are on the ground, for example. (Health & Safety at Work Act, Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and COSHH).
In my learning groups all people of every nation with any special educational needs and disabilities and of course of either sex are welcome to attend (The Equality Act, The Disability Discrimination Act, SENDA, the Sex Discrimination Act and the Race Relations Act).
As my groups consist of families with young children the Protection of Children Act and the RIDDOR comes also into action. Any signs of bad treatment or abuse need to be recorded and reported to the Council. Not only for that reason but also for any other record keeping of the learners the Data Protection Act is also relevant for my work.
The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act is taken into account when writing handouts for the learner's extended learning.
