BTEC National Diploma in Health and Social Care Unit 6 - Personal and Professional Development Rozwana Akhtar Mohammed Student PIN- 10003445 Assignment One P1, P2 P1 - Explain key influences on your personal learning process using at least five influences It is crucial to understand various learning styles as every individual has their own methods and easy ways of learning. There are many barriers that can influence learning leaving either a positive or a negative affect on learners. Influences on learning can include past experiences with learning, motivation, access to resources, teachers/friends, and even family and lifestyles. I personally am a visual learner. Visual learners prefer to be shown things. They like to see and read, rather than to hear and listen. Their imaginations are powerful and are used in learning. I prefer to read and make sense of things myself rather than to rely on others to explain things to me. Listening can be difficult as times come when some messages are not conveyed correctly and I have to ask for the message to be repeated. I rather am independent, have my books, pens and other resources out and get on with the work myself without being dependent on others. ...read more.


Working in a class with people who are dedicating their time to learn helps me have the same commitment to my work. However, working with classmates who show no enthusiasm in their work can influence me and it is very likely I will feel the same way. This also can influence the teachers teaching methods. It can make it difficult for me to take things in and learn with so many distractions. 2. Organisation - The key to effective learning is good organisation. From my personal experience, I have learnt that being organised helps me to work easier and keeps me on track with what I am doing. I complete all my work in the given time and am punctual and have good attendance. My time is spent wisely and I have the time to do both work and play. Being organised helps one to feel content, and there is no stress or pressure as one will remain well - prepared and aware of all areas of work. Organisation has a positive influence on learning. During my school years, I was not as organised as I am now. I noticed that the quality of my work increased and I became better in my learning as I improved in my organisation skills. ...read more.


From doing this, I have become more motivated which has again helped me and has had a positive effect on my learning. In school, I had no aims and no ideas of what career path I wanted to follow. However, I now had to choose what I wanted to do and have chosen to work in the health and social care sector. Becoming a social worker is my target and I know I can only reach this if I work hard, and this helps me to enjoy learning so I can progress. During my early years of learning I found it very difficult to learn. This is because I had no self - discipline and low self - esteem. I thought of myself as low, and this caused me to have no interest in learning. However, as I grew older and was on GCSE level, my teachers and even my family helped me to think better of myself by praising me for every little good I did and making me feel certain that I was capable of working hard. Thanks to them, I have broken these barriers I had inside me and now work myself to the fullest. I am a dedicated learner and wish to do well in every area of my life. ?? ?? ?? ?? 3 ...read more.
