PART TWO: ASSESSMENT TASKS

Before you commence this assessment, please read the student declaration on the front page. It is important that you are ready for assessment and understand the assessment process. Please speak with your Trainer if you have any questions. 

Assessment Task 1

Promoting inclusion

Purpose

This assessment task is designed to assess your skills and knowledge in promoting inclusion.

Requirements

To complete this assessment task, you need:

  • access to a children’s services environment
  • to answer the questions and submit responses as directed by your trainer/assessor/training organisation
  • access to the Early Years Learning Framework and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

It is essential that you promote inclusion. To do so you must:

  • make curriculum decisions that promote participation
  • demonstrate actions that assist, support and encourage children to participate
  • interact with families and children in ways that show you believe in their capacity to succeed
  • work with others within and outside of your service to develop your professional knowledge of people with different needs.

The following are some people and services that can support you to do these things:

  • Families of children with additional support needs
  • Educational leaders
  • Professional Support Coordinators (PSCs)
  • Inclusion Support Agencies (ISAs)
  • Services within the community that specialise in supporting children with specific additional support needs

1. Explain and provide evidence to show how each of these people and services assist you to promote inclusion. You might provide evidence such as:

· documents

· pamphlets, leaflets or flyers

· website addresses

· notes from discussions

· points based on your knowledge.

 

2. Reflect on UNICEF’s The right to participation (www.unicef.org/crc/files/Right-to-Participation.pdf) and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Explain how your service philosophy, policies and procedures link to this international legislation. Discuss:

· inclusion, equity and diversity

· the need for understanding different backgrounds, experiences, and needs of families in exceptional circumstances or with additional needs

 

3. Link the principles of inclusion and participation to a Principle, Practice and Outcome of the Early Years Learning Framework.

 

Assessment Task 2

Purpose

This assessment task is designed to assess your skills and knowledge in respecting diversity.

Requirements

To complete this assessment task, you need:

  • access to a children’s services environment
  • to answer the questions and submit responses as directed by your trainer/assessor/training organisation
  • to ensure you maintain confidentiality as required.

Seek permission before you interview two sets of parents from two different families. Explain that their participation will help you understand more about families and the differences and similarities of children within the service. Remind the parents that their participation is voluntary and they do not have to contribute any information they wish to keep private.

1. Ask the parents questions that focus on the differences in each family home. Consider family routines, culture, lifestyle and values. Provide the questions that you ask and the families’ responses..

 

2.Identify the similarities and differences between each family. Aim to find at least four similarities and four differences. Include your findings about similarities and differences in a short report.

 

3.Choose one child from one of the families you have just interviewed. Explain how this child’s rights have been valued and acknowledged within the service. Consider the following:

· How the child’s family culture has been valued and acknowledged

· How the child’s personal identity has been valued and acknowledged

· How the child’s abilities and strengths have been valued and acknowledged

· If you are unable to find evidence for any of these points within the service, explain how it could be done.

 

4.Develop a discussion experience for children that explores the diversity within your service. Include information about:

  • fairness
  • similarities and differences
  • interdependence
  • respectful and equal relations.
