Roles, responsibilities and boundaries
In my role as an assessor/trainer in a financial services environment, it is important for me to understand the roles contained within this occupation and also ...view middle of the document...
This will mean looking at the diversity issues within the group and the different learning styles I may encounter. A good tool which I have found to use in this respect is the Honey & Mumford Learning Styles Questionnaire. This questionnaire helps ascertain whether my learners styles of learning are as an activist, reflector, theorist, pragmatist or a mixture of all four. This then gives me the information required to accommodate all learner styles when constructing and developing my learning materials.
During my training it is important to give and accept feedback. This helps with further development of training for myself and also helps learners with encouragement and inspiration to achieve further.
My responsibilities as a teacher is to ensure deadlines are met and results are positive. Recording and reporting are an important aspect of this as this will show the outcomes of each training program so that progression can be strived towards and individual targets can be met.

It is not acceptable for me as a teacher to get involved in personal/social issues which my learners may have and may confide in me. If this situation was to occur I would politely but firmly signpost them to a person or organisation who specialise in the particular area.

As a teacher, I need to be aware of current legislation that are relevant to their subject area and organisation: -

This Act sets out the general duties which employers have towards employees and members of the public, and employees have to themselves and to each other.
These duties are qualified in the Act by the principle of ‘so far as is reasonably

or reduce the risk if...
