Review you roles, responsibilities and boundaries as a teacher in terms of the teaching/training cycle
The teaching/training cycle is crucial for the overall learning of students if they are to progress in their education. Preparation is ‘key’ to enable all other aspects of teaching to flow smoothly. All students need an induction for both the tutor and the learner to enable records to be kept up-to-date and to enable the learners to feel at ease with their tutor.

They should be able to identify the need to refer any learners to any outside agencies if they have specific learning needs or know who they would need to refer their observations to within their establishment. Failure to observe any needs could lead to learners falling behind or developing behavioural issues due to frustration. Physical disabilities need to be identified to enable suitable arrangements for that learner, i.e. wheelchair access, visual impairment, hearing loss or learners who have height requirements – appropriate furniture to accommodate.
Plan and Design
Schemes of work need to be in place along with lesson plans to ensure continuity of lessons. In order to accomplish learner’s targets preparation of materials need to be thought out and planned in advance. Resources need to be available for learners to access in order to carry out expected tasks. Health and safety is to be observed and appropriate preparation for practical lessons carried...
