Engage in personal development in health, social care on children's and young people's settings
Describe the duties and responsibilities of own work role
Practitioners have responsibility to create and maintain a safe, happy, positive, stimulating, Multi cultural learning environment in which children can be cared for. Practitioners should also draw attention to Policies and Procedures in their setting and have good understanding about them.
The main duty of practitioners is to maintain a level of good working practice at all times. As a practitioner we need to listen to children. We need to respect and promote the rights, wishes and feelings of the children.   It is also extremely important that every child is protected, to promote their wellbeing and rights. Everyone who is involved in the care of children, has a role to play in child protection. As a practitioner our duty is to protect any child from significant harm. Even as a student I would need to inform other practitioners if I would have any concerns and then they would   seek   necessary professional support or advice from relevant associations if there would be any safeguarding and development concerns. Multi-agency working brings together practitioners from different sectors and professions to provide an integrated way of working to support children, young people and families. In every day practice it is also important to be involved in the setting up and clearing away at the start and end of each session as required and to ensure that toys and equipment are maintained, clean and safe to play with or use.
