Topics: Education
Roles and Responsibilities (draft).
Toby Clarke

This essay will address how organisations involved in further education, such as OFSTED (on a national level) and Sussex Downs College (on a local level) impact on the teaching roles and responsibilities of lecturers with respect to the delivery of their related courses through legislative measures and the introduction of internal policies. In order to examine the factors that impact on these roles and responsibilities, this essay will consider the LLUK Professional Standards for teachers in the Lifelong Learning Sector, government legislation (such as The Equality Act 2006 and The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974) and the contractual obligations of an FE teacher as defined by the workplace.

In recent years the role of a teacher has changed, as there has been a shift in thinking about what education is and how it should be delivered. Through the implementation of government legislation and educational research, there has been a push towards reducing discriminatory practice within the Lifelong Learning Sector (LLS). It is the responsibility of educational establishments, and the staff employed by them, to provide teaching and learning which accommodates these. It is important that the FE sector adopts these strategies and embeds them into their working practice as a whole, from their mission statement through to the classroom environment and the teaching that takes place there. The Equality and Human Rights Commission states that:

“The right to education is a universal human right set out by the United Nations. In the UK, that right is now seen as a right to an effective education. In other words, that doesn’t just mean having an opportunity to go to school. It means that education and training providers should take account of learners’ circumstances and needs in helping them to fulfill their potential. Under British anti-discrimination legislation, you also have the right not to be discriminated against

Clarke believes that one must have faith not only during blissful times, such as during the time of creation, but also during time of anguish, such as when destruction occurs. God "created" when a star flew over Bethlehem, just as God destroyed a star, the Phoenix Nebula, and its surrounding planets including any life that may have lived there. God does…
