________________ D1. The 4 aspects of professional practice that I have chosen are: 1. Non-judgemental approaches to practice 2. Time keeping and attendance 3. Short and long term planning 4. Supporting colleagues D2. The reasons why the 4 aspects of professional practices are important because: 1. Non-judgemental approaches to the practice is very important because you can?t just be pointing fingers at anyone in the setting because you feel that you are right because the same thing might happen to you and you would not like to be blamed for something that you did not do. 2. Good time keeping and the attendance is very important because so many people rely on you to be carrying out your responsibilities this includes the team, the parents and the children. 3. Short and long term planning is important because you will need to use the plan for certain amount of months or years like a short term plan could be for a child or keyworker who just started in your setting and will only be there for a few months that is when the short term plan comes in but if the child or the keyworker will be there for several years or more that is where the long term plan will come in. 4. Supporting colleagues is important because you are a team and if you were to need help your colleagues would think back to the time that you helped them and help you to. ...read more.


4. When developing knowledge and skill of supporting the colleagues in the practice the practitioner would have to always be supportive to their colleagues during hard times and good times because when the practitioner is supportive towards the colleagues the practitioners colleagues e.g. Your colleague has just been through a rough divorce and child custody battle and is having a hard time getting back on their feet so in order for you to help you help by reducing their work load at the work place meaning helping them when you can, helping them out of the work placement as well as in the work placement when you do this for your work colleagues they would feel grateful and would also offer help when you need it and you will also gain more closeness with their work colleagues. D4. When communicating effectively with children and their parents practitioners would have to: 1. Make sure that their conversation is within confidential space meaning that only you the practitioner with the child and the parent. 2. If you are writing a letter to the parent of the child you will have to make sure that the information is clear. Spelling, punctuation and grammar must be accurate. Consider word processing them. 3. If talking to the parent over the phone make sure that no one else can hear your conversation. 4. When speaking to the parent the practitioner should also remember to speak in appropriate manner e.g. ...read more.


B1. This is a development on questions D4. Although I did not know immediately the answer to the question that the parent had asked me, the parent was satisfied because I was honest and said that I would find out by a certain date and get back to them and also keep an eye on their child in case of improvement in activities and behaviour. The parent was pleased with the new date and asked to set up another meeting for them and also asked for a written report at the next meeting. B2. It is important to maintain confidentiality when working with children and their parents because 1. Your professional responsibility as the child?s key worker 2. Building trust between you, the child, and the parent(s) 3. Following the policies of the work setting 4. Maintaining the rights of the children and families 5. The welfare of the children especially those in the foster care system A1. The benefits of preparing for employment and being able to find out further relevant professional development would be: 1. You have more information than the rest of the other applicants 2. You will have better confidence during your interview 3. The employers will think that you are better suited for the job 4. You would have had further training than the other applicants. ________________ Toyosi Tijani ________________ Unit 5Page ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This essay covers several, rather diverse areas. It is fine in its content but could do with some more relevant examples to demonstrate understanding.

It could be enhanced by trying to build up explanations. The work is very much general statements rather than saying why things are needed.
