6.4.1 Demonstrate an understanding of the rationale for continued professional learning and the implications for improved student learning.
Knowing the student is a substantial advantage for the teacher. Most of the time, the students’ background determines the behavioural outcome. The teachers will have more compassion when they know that the student comes from a complex environment. The teacher can assist the student better in becoming a better version of themself. The student who grows up in a single-parent house will have a different experience than the student in the hotel or with both parents. The goal is to know the student, the community, and the culture and improve student learning. To be more part of their journal, guiding them where is needed.
