I have been given a copy of the grievance procedure and understand this fully I have also signed in my contract to say that I understand the procedure. I have read through the complaints procedure as it is explaining about conflict management, which I fully understand. By working with my employer I can help to resolve any complaints by following this procedure. I have read the dealing with racial harassment policy which outlines discrimination against anyone on the grounds of race, colour, nationality or ethnicity.

Giving first aid when required. Asking the children and inviting them to help with activity planning. Also going to appropriate and relevant training courses to help with any issues. To keep the place of work healthy safe and secure. BVii a) By following best practice within my work role I can set a good example to less experienced employees and to the clients.

By showing best practice I can create confidence within the setting to ensure that clients continue to come back to us. b) By not carrying out the requirements of my role I could damage the service that the company provides. If a client were to see me not carrying out the requirements it would leave a bad impression on the company and result to the client leaving. It could also teach less experienced employees that this is acceptable behaviour and they could then follow suit and the quality of the service would be non existent. BViiiMy own work must be influenced by national factors because it is the agreed way of working. The government has set up different national factors to help us to provide a safer and happier learning environment and this should be followed in every workplace.

Bix a) OFSTEAD ; Social Services b) Ofsted's role is to make sure that all childcare providers meet the requirements of the EYFS ( early year’s foundation stage). ofsteads also make sure that the childcare providers are protecting children, help children to be healthy safe and enjoy and achieve, make positive contributions and develop key skills. o promote high quality care, learning and development and to reassure parents.

Task C to be able to work as a play worker I need to train in First Aid, Child Protection, Food & hygiene, Health & safety, Manual Handling. I will also need to complete my N. V. Q level 2 certificates for the children. nd young people's workforce. once I have completed this I would like to continue to work towards my N.

V. Q level 3. once I have completed my level 3 I would like to work towards becoming a play leader within my branch. I would also like to work to becoming a classroom assistant and looking for the correct qualifications to do this. I will need to be level 2 certificates for teacher assistants.

there is a wide range of different certificates to choose from and I can also work towards level 3. which I would like to do. nce I have gained these qualifications I can then branch out to work with children that have disabilities. I think that this would be something that I would like to do.

Task D The issue raised is: are children safe at nursery? the case that I am going to look at is when a three year old girl was attacked at her nursery by a two year old. the little girl was taken to hospital with a suspected broken eye socket. the police were called to investigate the attack but could not proceeded as the child was below the legal criminal age, which is ten in this country. he adults that were supervising the children six of the eight staff was in a separate room drinking tea and chatting. the staff knew that this child had attacked other children before and had left her unattended.

the negative points of view in this case are that if the child were to continue to attack children then why the parents weren’t notified. Also why weren’t the children’s parents giving a warning. if this child continued to miss behave why didn't the nursery staff expel the child? why wasn’t the nursery staff there to oversee the children and make sure that they were playing safely? he other points are that they child is only two, therefore is not aware of their actions and how it could hurt someone. I think that with this case there are several other cases that are similar.

I think that people within the childcare service need to be fully qualified to deal with children that have bad tempers and are badly behaved. that staff should be watching the children of a young age at all times. I think that people’s opinions are affected once a negative story has been brought to attention. eople are not going to want to put there children into care at this nursery because this could happen to their children.

the fact that the staff was also not doing their jobs properly will bring a negative vibe to the nursery and parents will not want to leave their children in the nurseries care. I think that people are persuaded by negative stories rather than positive. people will be able to remember the negative things rather than the positive which is why doing everything right is good as it sets a positive example of the place of work.
