Roles and Responsibilities of a Teacher

The main role of a teacher is to increase, or make communication easier among all students, and encourage students to discuss the topic chosen, assess various learning styles within the group and identify various teaching methods. A teacher also has to make sure that all students have equal rights and safe learning environment where they are able to build a trusting and honest relationship.
The main responsibility of a teacher is to keep reassessing and monitoring the students continuously to learn their changing needs. The structure and delivery of the course has to be changed according to student’s needs.
There are five steps in a teacher training cycle:
1. Identifying Needs and Planning:
· A teacher’s role is to initially assess the students and find out their preferred learning styles and any special needs also taking into account students’ previous educational experiences.
· A teacher is then responsible to plan the lessons in such a way that it reaches all the students considering the needs of the organisation too.
2. Designing:
· The role of a teacher is to take into consideration the length of the course and the number of sessions available and then has to plan and design the course in such a way that the syllabus is completed efficiently in the available time.
· The teacher has to be responsible for designing different teaching methods to effectively deliver the course with the available resources and completing an assessment to make sure that the message has reached every single student.
3. Facilitating:
· The role of a teacher is facilitating rather than dictating. The teacher has to make sure that the course was adaptive and that the teaching methods and resources suited each student’s needs.
· The teacher is responsible to make sure that there was equal teacher, student involvement in each session, complete an assessment to test students’ understanding and also encourage students to clarify any doubts regarding the session taught.
