As a Surface Design and Textiles graduate, currently undertaking the PGCE, I am doing my teaching practice with HNC/HND Fashion Textiles students in the fashion department at Bedford College.
My role and responsibility are to support and demonstrate to young adults my creativity and knowledge I have learned from fashion industries and my studies.

By educating individuals, my responsibility is to give some desirable knowledge, attitudes, interests, good understanding and critical thinking. Having the ability to educate a group of students will lead each student to be able to learn and think in different way. To educate lifelong learning sectors, my role is to recognize the way learners comprehend from their experience or conceptualise the world around them depending on the profession they are studying.
“Learning depends on the individual’s experiences within, for example, his or her family, social environment and, more specifically, the educational institutions he or she attends.”(Curzon, 2009, p.4)
Lifelong Learning is an adult learning process where students are continuously supported by lecturers, Tutor or teachers who empower individuals to obtain all the knowledge…
