Childcare in Education Level 3, Unit 1. The different sectors involved in education and relevant legislation.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Unit 1 assignment. Statutory sector education is provided my law by the government or by the local authorities for children aged 5 - 18. What the setting teach is based on the National Curriculum or the EYFS framework. One example of a setting which is a statutory sector is a mainstream primary or secondary school. Statutory sector supports children and their families by providing a childcare facility and education which in turn provides a good start in life and a place where parents know that their children are safe. It also provides a routine that helps children later in life to deal with work schedules. Voluntary sector is paid for by donations and charities, however the authorities do pay for the upkeep. The voluntary sector depends on voluntary, rather than paid for effort, an example of a voluntary sector setting is a youth centre. These organisations add value to the community and bring the community closer together, voluntary sectors provide their own child protection, health and safety and data protection policies and procedures, however still undergo regular OFSTED inspections. Voluntary sectors provide a place for underprivileged children to socialise with children they might not have met otherwise, it also provides a place for children of families with low incomes to go which requires no membership or fee, voluntary settings also usually provide a volunteer social worker that is there for support. Private sectors are provided by donations and funding mainly from churches. Private settings have the option of whether or not to follow the national curriculum as it is not legally required. ...read more.

Taking notes when the practitioner is giving you instructions is a very good way of communicating as you can repeat them back to them to make sure that you are completely certain as to what it is you are performing. Being able to time manage is also a key skill to have in a setting. It ensures that the children stick to a routine, so that every morning you are there before the children are. If not they may start to ask questions and may become quite distressed before coming to the setting as to whether or not you will be there when they arrive. It also shows that you are committed to the setting , being on time also builds confidence, not just for the children, but for the other practitioners and for the parents to. They know that when they come into the setting you are there to ensure that their child is safe before the parent leaves. Another important professional skill is being able to look after your personal hygiene, it is an important way of preventing infection from spreading, children's skin is very sensitive and may react if infection is spread via skin and clothing. Clothing should be easily washable, as you might have many things spilt down you, make sure that they are clean and wash them after every time that you wear them, use aprons whenever they are provided to protect your clothes. Your hair must be clean and long hair must be tied back. ...read more.

Conclusion

(www.ohchr.org/english/law/pdf/crc.pdf) The practitioner must have an objective view within the setting, however, that objectiveness would be compromised if the practitioner knows the child from outside the setting or if the practitioner becomes too attached to the child within the setting, the practitioner would want them to achieve higher, therefore may work with that child more closely and provide extra support for that child rather than someone who desperately needs it. A child centred approach is important as it lets the child expand any area of development they want. It may also produce model ideas for the practitioner to use as part of the children's learning. Child centred approach provides a chance for the practitioner to ask questions as to what the child is doing, this improves the practitioners knowledge about the childs imagination and personality and it also improves the child language skills, they learn new words about what they are doing and use words that they knew and become more confident using. With a child centred approach the children can use anything that they can find, anything that is in the setting they can use. Therefore the role of the practitioner is to provide the correct resources for that age group and to make sure that the resources are accessible to the children. The practitioner should also interact with the child by asking questions but not telling the child what they should be doing or how they should make it better. From this the practitioner should be able to review and reflect on each child's individual learning and development from the activity that the child chose to do. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

A very good essay that shows the writer has done their research. The first half of the essay discusses current legislation and how this influences the way a setting works. There are places that the writer could expand on by giving a little more explanation in the second half, extending their ideas a little.
