Introduction
The purpose of the unit is to provide the learner with knowledge and understanding of
theories, principles and models applied to education and training. It includes application of
theories, principles and models of learning, communication and assessment in education
and training, the application of theories and models of curriculum development within own
area of specialism, and the application of theories and models of reflection and evaluation to
the evaluation of own practice.
In this unit, candidates will investigate their own skill specific area in order to inform their
knowledge to support their planning and delivery of inclusive teaching and learning. A key
feature of this unit is the opportunity to carry out research into theories, principles and
models of learning, communication and assessment in education and training. Another
aspect of research will be into theories, principles and models of curriculum development
specifically related to the candidate’s subject specialism. The findings of the research should
then be applied to the candidates own practice, and the theories of reflection and evaluation
should also be applied.
This unit will provide evidence in some form of written assignment to evidence the
assessment criteria and may also contribute to some product evidence which will be lodged
in the portfolio of teaching evidence.
All tasks should be presented in a professional written format and include evidence of your
research with references. This includes linking research coherently to your writing and using
referencing, such as a bibliography, citing and quotes following the Harvard Reference Style.
All your work needs to be submitted in one file through Turnitin Submission Link in
Moodle (VLE).
