Inclusive Learning and how Adopting inclusive Learning Approaches Supports Learners
Inclusive learning is about involving learners in all teaching activities, treating them equally without indirectly or directly excluding anyone. Wilson, (2008:296) defined inclusive learning simply as “available to all”. Tummons, (2010:93) while agreeing with Wilson defined it as the approach to learning and teaching that encourages the total participation of all learners. (Morris, 2007:103) also suggested that you may need to alter the way you support and guide candidates so they can achieve their full potentials.
I quiet agree with the trio and their suggestions are in line with the Equality Act of 2010 which provides the right for everyone to have the opportunity to reach their potential regardless of their: gender, race, disability, age, religion, sexual orientation.
During initial assessment I would identify learner’s individual needs and take them into consideration when planning my lessons. In health and social care, we have a wide mix of people from different ethnic groups working in residential and domiciliary homes. I would thus ensure that my assessment methods and delivery fit their needs whilst keeping in mind their beliefs, skills, pre-existing commitments and knowledge.
