Unit 302 Level3 in Education and Training
a) Outline the key features of inclusive teaching and learning Inclusive learning is about ensuring all your learners have the opportunity to be involved and included in the learning process. It’s also about treating all learners equally and fairly, without directly or indirectly excluding anyone. Inclusion is about attitudes as well as behaviour, as learners can be affected by the words or actions of others. You are not teaching you’re subject to a group of learners who are all the same, but to a group of individuals with different experiences, abilities and needs which should be recognised and respected. Agreeing individual learning plans (ILPs) and/or action plans can help formalise this. Source: Gravells, 2013.
Key Features of inclusive teaching and learning |
The removal of physical barriers that prevent access |
Adapting teaching practices and/or resources to meet specific individual needs (e.g. sight or hearing impairment, language requirements etc.) | Adapting teaching and learning strategies to differentiate and meet individual needs | Flexible timetabling and programme structure, e.g. tutorials, start and finish times, etc. | Ensuring that additional or basic skills support is agreed and monitored | Making learning accessible from outside the classroom, e.g. use of VLE, LRC, etc. |
b) Explain why it is important to create opportunities I you teaching/training to support and develop the core essential skills (i.e. literacy, numeracy and ICT) and related skills, such as working with others and employability skills. We use key skills in everyday living e.g. reading a menu, telling the time and checking if our wages are correct. This doesn’t mean that all staff within MHC are confident or don’t need extra support with their key skills. We use key skills; literacy, numeracy and ICT within MHC on daily basis with the paperwork we have to produce e.g. - Literacy | Numeracy | ICT |
