Mohbeen khan Unit 5: Communication and professional skills Within childcare and education D1- I have chosen the following aspects of professional practice. These are time-keeping and attendance, supporting colleagues, attitudes to work and understanding of children's behaviour. D2 - Time - keeping and attendance is very important because if the practitioner does not arrive on time then staff members will not be able to rely on him or her, sometimes there may be a staff shortage and staff members need extra help so staff members won't be happy if the practitioner is late. It is important for parents and children to be on time so that the children can understand the importance of time keeping. Sometimes the parents need to drop their children off early because they need to go to work, therefore if the practitioner is not on time and there is not enough staff to look after their child, the parent will not be happy and might be late for work. While attending a placement practitioners should always be friendly and polite and have good eye contact, other than that practitioners should always support colleagues or encourage them to work their hardest because this could affect work and affect the children you are working with. A practitioner should always work hard during the day and should always support colleagues because this could also benefit the children, it can encourage them to interact well with other children, this can be done by them using you and other friendly staff members as role models. It is also very important that the staff members work as one in other words work as a team this can influence the children to work in a good manner and also work well when being put in groups or teams. When supporting colleagues you should be helpful and friendly and not judge them because if you need to talk then they might be kind and help you out the way you helped them when they were behind with their tasks or when the setting was short staffed. ...read more.


at my placement I have realised that it will help me greatly when I become a professional practitioner because it gives me an example of how work life would be. Time keeping is important because staff members will not give me reliable jobs and will not trust me if I did not arrive to work on time. When a person has good time management it shows that they are organised which also shows that they are professional. By arriving on time and having a good attendance it will be a better chance for you to develop a bond with the children. If your attendance is good then the practitioner has a better chance of getting a good reference. According to this website http://www.career-success-for-newbies.com/why-is-time-management-important.html date accessed: 13/ 1/2011 time management is very important because it helps you prioritize which can be based on a list of things you have to complete, it also says that by keeping track of time you can get more done in less and make a list of how long each job will take so that you don't spend your time doing nothing. When time managing your work is also in a much better quality because you are not rushing you have just the right amount of time to complete it so it is neater. Time keeping keeps you on track and helps you to understand all the stages you have to go through. Supporting colleagues is good and helpful and it shows that you are a kind person. It also brings staff confidence up and it will be more helpful for them to work around other staff members. According to this website: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_it_is_important_to_help_develop_and_support_your_colleagues_so_that_they_can_work_effectively_and_efficiently_and_the_benefits_to_your_organization Date accessed: 13/1/2011 It is important to help develop and support your colleagues to help them learn new skills, to build their confidence, to pinpoint areas where they may need support, if they are working effectively and efficiently it will help promote your area of work. ...read more.


children and parents at your setting and engage with the benefits that are on offer, they will not have sufficient awareness or in positive ways, none of you will be able to form strong, effective and positive relationships so practitioners always need to reflect on their communication so that they can work towards improving their communication weaknesses. The practitioner should always review them self's to make them self's better. There are many ways in which I can progress in my profession for becoming an English teacher for example look at different job adds to see what type of qualifications are needed for the type of job I am looking for. It is also important to talk to a tutor or a careers advisor to advise you the different types of routes you can take to get the job you need. Also I have been looking out for courses that I can take that can also improve my education by doing this it won't only help me but also can help my placement. I have been looking for a behaviour management course which fits in to my timetable this course can develop my qualifications and help me to get the job I need' because if I was with a group of people applying for the same job and they do not have the qualification I would get a better chance of being accepted for the job then the others applying for the job. There are many ways you can find different types of courses I have been looking at courses leaflets but you can look on college notice boards or even talk to an advisor at the job centre. Tassoni, P says "an important way of keeping up to date is to read. Most settings subscribe to professional magazine and journals which can help you to gain ideas and keep you updated. (2008, 205) this reference also talks about how practitioners need to keep up to date on courses and information that could be helpful. ...read more.
