As a teacher, you also have a number of responsibilities, including making sure that you attend any professional upgrades you need to do, that your CPD is taken seriously and you dress appropriately. You will also have to adhere to any rules laid down by the company you will be teaching at, adhere to their codes of conduct at all times and you may need to register for a DBS check.

Other responsibilities could include agreeing on individual learning plans, risk assessing, designing schemes of work and to write session plans. It is crucial that you have all the equipment in place that you need to be able to teach and liaise with other people within your organisation.

Make sure that the records for everyone's individual training is kept up-to date.
