Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Lifelong Learning. The aim of this assignment is to enable me to understand the roles and responsibilities of a Teacher in lifelong learning, as well as the relationship between different professionals in lifelong learning. The focus of this will also be the responsibility of maintaining a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for students. Task 1
Key aspects of legislation, regulatory requirements and codes of practice relating to my own role and responsibilities as a teacher After I achieve the PTLLS qualification, I am planning to work in a role as teacher of Level 2 Literacy at a college in Hampshire. There is a range of legislation linking to equality and diversity, health and safety, quality assurance and standards within the organisation and I will be responsible for maintaining them: Equality Act 2010
The Equality Act 2010 makes it law that all teachers, students and employees are treated fairly, regardless of age, gender or nationality, and that all have an opportunity to progress to become teachers and also to work at management level, regardless of disability. For example, our department head is a native Japanese female who is dyslexic. But she cannot receive less pay than a male performing the same job, nor can she be passed over for promotion because of her gender, her dyslexia or her nationality. Students also need to be treated equally, with no special treatment on account of something I may feel strongly about such as their personal beliefs.
Disability Discrimination Act 1995
This legislation makes it illegal to refuse to employ someone or treat them unfavourably on the basis of their disability. The vice principal is a partially deaf wheelchair user and I will be teaching 3 students who have autism. The law says that I must provide for the learning of these students and not assume that they do not understand what is required of them in class.
Human Rights Act 1998
