AC 1.1 Explain the teaching role and responsibilities in education and training
Teachers have many roles and responsibilities when delivering teaching and learning. These include designing a programme of study before assessing students individually to identify any learning needs which may require additional support or changes to be made to the programme. Teachers must put time and effort into the planning of classes by producing a scheme of work and preparing daily/weekly session plans. Developing interesting ways of learning such as Visual, Audio & Kinaesthetic (VAK) is another important aspect of teaching as it helps to keep students interested and keen to learn.
Keeping records is another responsibility of a teacher; monitoring attendance and punctuality with a register, keeping a record of the number of SEN students and what additional classroom support they may need and recording data on retention, achievement etc. Another important role is monitoring the progress of learners through tests and assessments, assessing the impact of learning for each student individually in order to identify any needs which may require additional support, entering students for tests and exams based on their progress and abilities, giving feedback in a way that will help students improve and evaluating the effectiveness of the programme to identify areas that may need improvement.
Teachers also have a duty of care which includes ensuring a safe learning environment for all students, being aware of the policies regarding health and safety, acting within professional codes to safeguard students at all times and providing pastoral care such as supporting a student with personal problems or referring them to a counsellor or outside organisation if necessary.
