The courses that I have written so far are not accredited so I have used the National Occupational Standards (NOS) to devise courses that are aimed at learners’ needs and to have achievable outcomes. I researched the internet to ensure the right websites and software was the most appropriate tools for the learners’ and also keeps my area of knowledge and teaching theory up-to-date.

The lesson plans have differentiated tasks making sure all the learners felt they had achieved a good outcome.

I researched the internet for practical exercises and produced course materials that included text and screen grabs keeping in mind different learning abilities.
Assessing learners through question and answers, group discussion and observation I am able to evaluate if the course is aimed at the right level for the learner and correct course content. Continually assessing myself I was able to change my delivery style to suit the learners’ needs as I want the learners to achieve what I know they are capable of. At the end of each course I ask the learners to fill out feedback forms so I can evaluate what the learners thought the course content, what else they suggest would be of use in further courses.
Assessing the progression of the students learning is essential for them to achieve the desired outcomes. It allows me to evaluate their progress and give them
