Task 1; describe what your role, responsibilities and boundaries would be as a teacher in terms of the teacher training cycle.
The Teacher Training Cycle
The teaching training cycle consist of five stages. These stages are indentify needs, plan and design, deliver and facilitate, assess and the final stage is evaluate. Within the cycle a teacher has roles and responsibilities these are:
Identify the learning needs of learners
Evaluate additional support needs of learners
Use of appropriate resources in allowing learners to learn
This can be achieved by a student evaluation sheet, which details different criteria such as age gender background and work experience. This also highlights any additional support the student may require, i.e. large print handouts. You could also do this in an initial interview or a written test.

Boundaries ground our ethics; they are core to recognising our limitations and realising when changes maybe needed. There are obvious boundaries such as the appropriateness of the teacher learning relationship and disciplinary lines for miss conduct and strong ethical issues which is core to every teacher. E.g. if a student was misbehaving a teacher must not cross a boundary by physically touching them or restraining, you must deal with the situation appropriately in your teaching capacity.
A teacher should understand when a student requires help beyond their teaching capacity and not cross the boundary by forcing help or not directing the student to the right support. E.g. if a learner had learning difficulty such as dyslexia you would need to refer them to support staff but maintain confidently if support was refused The teacher should not get emotionally involved and always keep contact on a professional level.
