Teacher essay summary

4 star(s)

This is a good essay that has a clear writing style and is easy to read. The writer has done some research and that shows though there is scope to discuss it in further detail.

The writer has attempted some evaluation but tends to describe rather than fully evaluate at times. Work could be enhanced by trying to fully explain how factors can impact.

Task 2:

Factors that influence learning vary between individuals, so factors that affect me may not necessarily affect others.

David Kolb observed that "personal habits and routines, beliefs, cultural customs, values, motivation and career aspirations are all influences because they can affect attitudes to study and its priority over other demands on an individual, such as home life or work." (B. Stretch, M. Whitehouse. BTEC Nationals Health and Social Care Book 1: 279)

The following diagram shows a range of influences that affect learning.

The factors which are identified in the diagram that have the most impact on my learning are: time, friends, aspirations, employment, lifestyle and motivation. Some of these factors influence me negatively and some positively; although I have found that with experience and change in my surrounding environment that these factors differ. I have also found that with experience I have developed ways to overcome the barriers that influence my learning.

The factors that currently influence my learning do have a strong impact; my chosen lifestyle means that I need to be employed and work a minimum of sixteen hours per week in order to pay the bills.
