Q 1.1.: Sumamarise key aspects of legislation, regulatory requirements and codes of practice relating to own role and responsibilities.
There are many key legislation and regulations that are binding on me as a Teacher in the Life Long Learning Sector. These are both generic and specific to my specific area of specialisation.   “It is important for you to keep up to date with all relevant legislation and codes of practice to ensure you are remaining current with your knowledge and skills, and with any changes or updates that have taken place (A.Gravells 2012).   For instance, every trainer must comply with the Children Act 2004 and to embed the 5 Every Child Matters outcomes which are (a) Be healthy (b) Stay Safe (c) Enjoy and achieve ( d) Make a Positive contribution( e) Achieve economic wellbeing.   Ever trainer or teacher must also comply with the Health and Safety at work Act 1974. This act means that teachers have a responsibility for the safety of myself and others. I therefore need to adhere to the rules of my organisation before embarking for example on school trips or excursions with the students I teach.
The Data Protection Act 1998 requires all organisations that “hold any data on individuals, electronic or otherwise for more than two months to register as data users (L. Wilson 2009)”. It also that as Teachers, we need to apply caution when we hold records with reference to students or staff.   I am also bound by the Code of Professional Practice (2008) which hinges on Integrity, Respect, Care, Practice, Disclosure and Responsibility.   In my specialist area which is Life Coaching, I am not expected to engage in unfair discrimination based on any basis whatsoever.
