Assignment 1

Describe what your role, responsibilities and boundaries would be as a teacher in   terms of the teaching/training cycle.

The VT Engineering Academy is located within HMS Sultan Naval Engineering

College in Gosport. It is a post 16 engineering college delivering

recognised apprenticeships to the commercial sector. The technical delivery is broken

down into two main parts: academic and craft each with their own external standards

to comply with: for academic it is the EDEXCEL Business Technician Education

Council (BTEC) and for craft the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ), both

craft and academic studies run concurrently as part of nationally recognised

engineering apprenticeship. It is the roles, responsibilities and boundaries of the

academic instructor across the whole teaching cycle that will be discussed within this

essay. The five stages can be expressed as: planning and preparation; initial assessment of

the student to be taught;   delivery of the lesson, summative examination, evaluation, which

then assists the planning and preparation phase and so the cycle continues. At every stage of

this cycle the teacher will have very distinctive roles, responsibilities and boundaries,

obviously these will differ between establishments and the subjects taught. To

illustrate this, the essay will examine an academic instructor of the VT Engineering

Academy teaching an EDEXCEL module up to level 3.
