The Role, Responsibilities and Boundaries of a Teacher

At Educating UK we are often asked by our learners undertaking the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) how to put into words the role and responsibilities of a teacher.

This blog will hopefully support anyone undertaking the qualification to do this. It is also a useful information guide for anyone interested in the teaching role.

There are many roles, responsibilities and boundaries related to the role of a teacher, tutor or trainer. They can include the following:

Role of a Teacher:

  • Deliver lessons effectively
  • Plan engaging and relevant lessons
  • Give regular feedback to learners
  • Support learners with their studies

Responsibilities of a Teacher:

    • Keep up to date with subject knowledge
    • Identify learner needs
    • Plan and prepare all lessons and resources
    • Mark assessments and make assessment judgements
    • Adhere to legislation such as to health and safety, equality and diversity and safeguarding

Boundaries a Teacher must consider:

When working with learners:

  • Teach without discriminating or stereotyping
  • Maintain the confidentiality of learner information
  • Act professionally and with integrity

 

When working with other professionals:

  • Only undertake activities as part of the teaching role. Do not undertake activities that are part of another professional’s role
  • Maintain the confidentiality of learners at all times when working with other professionals
