Essentials of Enhancing International Students Learning through Strategic Planning and Guided Support.

Identifying learning needs for International students are very important during Induction week. This enables appointed tutors to identify the limitations and the opportunity for curriculum plan to make necessary amendments at the early stage.

Managing Challenging Behaviour

For the organisation I work for, learners with challenging behaviour are more and more frequently being enrolled at the college, each learner is individually funded by the Local Education Authority with support ranging from £22,000 to £110,000 per year. Due to the funding allocated to individual learners, teachers have increasing pressures to meet targets such as learners completing their courses and passing. Subsequently, classroom behaviour management is a key element that needs to be successful to secure funding by meeting the targets set by the Local Education Authority in return for the enrolment of more learners with challenging behaviour thus more funding for the college. Therefore, identifying a workable and manageable behaviour strategy and policy that can be used consistently in the classroom and across the college is ever more important to get right in order to meet such targets.

The length of time to complete the programme at level 5 is often over 2 years, compared to target end date of one year.
