Before embarking upon this assignment I asked myself “Do I really know and understand why I teach the way I do”? It never crossed my mind until I realised that in some classes I found myself having to rethink and change my delivery methods so as to engage the younger students who didn’t always grasp what I had to say. To be honest, my previous experience of teaching delivery and development had been at the higher education level where participating students were focused and had little or no problem areas relating to their academic, I realise that I must relearn how to teach because the profile of the F.E. student has changed dramatically. My area of expertise is in Joinery & Carpentry studies which involves a great deal of practical delivery sessions at basic level to groups of 14 – 16 & 16-19 year old students of mixed abilities.
The courses themselves are designed to be the foundation blocks for today’s young Carpenters and contain fundamental elements of health & safety, basic Joinery & Carpentry knowledge/skills necessary for today’s construction. All courseware is made up of theory and practical units that includes skill and Knowledge tasks related to a common core curriculum and ensure that issues of literacy, numeracy and information technology are addressed to all students.
