As a learner myself on the Cert ed
Recognise students??™ abilities, styles, speed and level of learning, and tailor teaching to promote their involvement and understanding.

There are four main learning styles
Be familiar with the major schools of learning theory, and their applicability to teaching in your subject area

There are a number of schools of learning

I believe the communication model
Adapt and negotiate aspects of the curriculum to meet the capabilities and needs of students; e.g. APL, learning contracts, individualised programmes and action plans.
A1 C3 E3 F1
I find the use of individual learning action plan
Select a range of teaching and learning approaches appropriate to your subject area
The groups that I teach are small groups
Develop, use and evaluate a range of specific methods and resources to promote active learning, including learning from experience and practice opportunities
Within our provision we have two levels of groups
Promote effective communication in the teaching setting, between student and student as well as between yourself and students.
B D D3
To be able to teach all teachers must be able communicate
Facilitate students working in groups and on their own, both in and out of class
Group learning can have a positive impact
Use available basic educational technology to best effect, including whiteboards, OHP, handouts etc.
Work foundation sessions are not classroom based
Evaluate the present and potential uses of information, communication and learning technology in your own teaching area, including resource-based learning.
C D5 E4
The students would be much more comfortable
Appreciate issues in managing learning beyond the classroom, including placements and other forms of learning by or from experience, and working on ones own
When I feel the learner has progressed well enough
Relate to learners so as to encourage them to work effectively in class, in groups, and on their own
C D2 E4
Many of the students that I teach are of low academic ability
Engage in continual review and development of your approaches to facilitating learning, using feedback from all appropriate sources including students
Each individual learner has to be treated
Draw on both your own experience and that of colleagues, especially those on the Course, to develop your ideas and practice
I have learnt a lot from my colleagues
