Theory Assignment 2

I am enthusiastic in working for a Further or Higher Education college, where I can contribute my knowledge in Science, Maths and ICT to maximise the student learning environment. As a further education teacher, I will have to follow all the current legislative requirements and codes of practice relevant to my subject, to protect the students and myself in the teaching environment.

The relevant legislations for teachers are as follows:

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995:

This act aims in taking steps to make reasonable adjustments to overcome the physical barriers to access for disabled people in areas of employment, education, access to goods, facilities and services, buying or renting land or property and functions of public bodies.

I will have to make sure that disabled students are provided with facilities available from the service provider, to help them continue their education like other students for example while doing experiments and outdoor activities.

The Sex Discrimination Act 1975:

According to this act, it is unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of sex, marital status or gender reassignment, in employment, education, provision of goods, facilities and services.

I should not discriminate or exclude students on the grounds of sex, in access to classes, courses or other benefits, facilities provided by the service provider.

The Race Relations Act 1976:

This act prohibits discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality or ethnic origins, in employment, education, provision of services and facilities.

I have to consider race equality and make it an everyday part of teaching and learning enhancing the confidence of pupils with low self-belief.

Children’s Act 1989, Every Child Matters 2003:

This act helps safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are in need and also to promote the upbringing of such children by their families. Every child should get the support they need to be healthy, be safe, enjoy and achieve economic well-being.

I will have to include every student in the class and deliver classes that improve the life chances of all children and young people

Health and Safety at Work Act 1974:

This act aims at protecting people against risks to health and safety in connection with their activities at work, controlling use and possession of dangerous substances.

I will have to make sure that the environment that I am working is suitable for me and the learners, making any adjustments if necessary especially in laboratories while carrying out demonstrations and experiments.

Data Protection Act 1998:

This act aims at safeguarding the rights of individuals regarding processing of personal data and its movement. It should be adequate, relevant and not excessive and has to be kept up to date and should be obtained only for specified and lawful purposes. Personal data should not be kept longer than necessary and should not be transferred to countries outside EEA unless they offer adequate level of protection.

I will have a file for each learner that holds personal and confidential information. These files will be kept in a cabinet which is locked and only I will have access to that.

P.S: On a kind note, please do not copy anything submitted here and display them in your file. This has been published here, purely to help you gain an idea / understanding of what they expect you to write and how you have to write. You will have to relate to your own subject area, experience in your classroom and lectures while preparing the files. Thank you for your co-operation.
