It is your own responsibility for promoting equality and valuing diversity, to do this you must assess individual needs, learning styles and goals. Take into account all the factors that may stop them from enrolling Example: access to internet, dyslexia or a different language. Making sure notes are put on students files regarding health and educational needs and these are referred to the correct support service’s. Arrange programs at different times so everyone can attend or flexible program delivery e.g: distance learning.

You need to use initial assessment results to plan your lessons and individual learning. You need to ensure you involve all students in activities, treating them equally, and not excluding any students from the session, so knowing in advance their individual needs, is very important. (Gravells 2012. p57) says that “You are not teaching your subject to a group of students who are all the same, but to a group of individuals with different experiences, abilities and needs which should be reconised and respected.”

There are many responsibilities that come with being a teacher some of these are, continuously assess and reassess your students, create a safe learning environment physically and emotionally, establish open and trustworthy relationships and most of all be professional.
Teaching students is not the only role you will up hold whist being a teacher. You should also ensure that you know how your learners learn best by giving them a learning styles questionnaire. The learning styles are Activist, Reflector, Theorist or a Pragmatist. Creating a good first impression as within the first few minuets of meeting someone we make a decision about them, by being on time, smiling, being prepared, being confident and maybe starting off with an icebreaker so the new learners get to know you and each other you would be able to set a good example.
