Factors that Impact upon my Learning and Development

In this assignment I will consider how different factors can impact on adult l1earning, including my own learning and development.


Learning is a permanent change in behaviour or knowledge that comes from experience or training. What does this really mean? We all 'know things' and we can all perform a number of different behaviours. But where did all this come from? Some things are born with the individual. E.g the ability to eat or express basic emotions like happiness or sadness. Others must be acquired throughout life. Any knowledge or behaviour that we now possess but we were not born with, was somehow learned from the people and environment around us.

Children are natural learners. They learn by from the way they are spoken to and generally, the way they are treated by the people around them. Imitation is one of the most important ways of acquisiton in childhood, later playing takes over and 'the learners' gather most of the information about the world around them through 'doing' and experiencing.

Adult learning is different from childhood learning. With adult learning personal experience plays a big part in the learning process as new information is instinctively checked against the learners own experience. (This is probably one of the reasons why learning a foreign language as an adult is so different from learning it in childhood.) David Kolb produced his work on experimental learning in 1984. It is known as 'Kolb's experimental learning cycle'. In his work he states that experience plays a central role in the learning process. According to Kolb's theory learning is a four-stage cycle: always starts with Experience (concrete experience), then Reflection (reflective observation), Thinking (abstract conceptualisation) and Acting…...

A01 Health and Social Care as an in-depth understanding of health and wellbeing. I will then produce a comprehensive description that shows an in depth understanding of two different factors that affect health and wellbeing. I will also compare and show the differences between the medical and social models of health and wellbeing and why individuals often fail to comply with health education advice. I will then draw conclusions about each model of health and wellbeing. I will then aim to give a description of two ways of which individual’s quality of life is affected by ill health. Section A Good health is to do with physical, intellectual, emotional and social aspects in life. These aspects affect us daily. Eating healthy and exercising regularly is important as this could potentially prevent illness and disease. Good health may also be affected by society and how the media influences us. This may be related to teenagers and how they often look up to celebrities who could potentially affect their health and wellbeing. Environmental and economic factors have a big influence daily. One example of this is where we live and if there is crime. If there is, this may have a big impact on our physical health as well as emotional. People may be affected by economic factors specifically if they haven’t got much money, this could potentially mean they cannot afford treatment which in turn makes their physical and emotional health worse. There are three ways to describe health and wellbeing, Holistic,......

Health and Social Care Management

...Health and Social Care Management Question 1 1.1 Factors to be considered when planning the recruitment of individuals to work in health and social care According to Foot & Hook (1999), for the recruitment of the two vacant posts there are some factors to be considered such as planning recruitment policy, overall aim of recruitment, organizational objectives, personnel policies of the organization, government policies, need for the organization and confirm the vacancy, legislation for the post selection, recruitment cost and financial implications etc. Now the factors are described below: Defining requirements is the most important factor for recruiting a candidate. Sometimes there are some opportunities to replace an employee for fulfilling the company needs. So it should be justified and checked first. Requirement for the particular post should be set out in role profile form and person specification. A role profile where competence, skills, educational and experience requirements need to be provided to assess a candidate in a easier way in interview. Moreover, technical competencies, behavioural and attitudinal requirements, qualifications, training, experience, specific demands, manual handling competency, special requirements etc are need to be considered while recruiting the vacant posts in health and social care sector. Armstrong (2006) states that internal recruitment may be considered firstly but if the organization becomes failure in this method they have......

This unit aims to explain the reasons people do the things they do when it comes to health and wellbeing. The mind and the body are interlinked, e.g. stress caused by daily hassles or lifestyle can have a detrimental effect on the body’s immune system and can lead to serious illness. Psychologists have given us many ways to explain human behaviour and this unit is designed to enable learners to apply what they have learnt to their own practice; from helping people overcome emotional problems to dealing with challenging behaviours. The knowledge and understanding gained throughout the unit will benefit all those who work with others, be it people who use services, their friends and family, and other professionals. A wide range of perspectives is covered which can then be applied to many different health and social care settings. The behaviourists and social learning theorists can help to explain how health related behaviours are learnt as well as ways to teach new behaviours to people who use services. The humanists, on the other hand, provide us with a set of guidelines for working......

Health and Safety in Health and Social Care

...Health and Safety in the Health and Social Care Workplace INTRODUCTION (300 words) This essay will look at three different learning outcomes, each using a specific case study for illustration. The first part will focus on the issues relating to health and safety legislation and how these are implemented in the work place. The Health and Safety can trace its origin back to the year 1833 when The Factories Act led to the creation of the first factory inspectors and whose role was initially tasked with only preventing injury amongst child workers (Jarvis, 2011). This has significantly developed, since then, into a ‘must-have’ policy at work places not just here in the UK but throughout the European Unions (EU). The case of North Staffordshire combined NHS Trust (NSC) which will be discussed in some detail is living proof that Health and Safety, if managed effectively, could lead to better outcomes for all stakeholders. The second part of this essay will focus on the practicalities and the implementation mechanism of Health and Safety at work or lack thereof and the consequences that an organisation which transgresses may suffer for non-compliance as seen in the case of South Birmingham Primary Care Trust. To this end, issues such as lifting and handling heavy loads as well as other dilemma faced by organisations in relation to health and safety will be explored with a view to grasping the implications not only at individual levels but also at corporate level.

Counselling in Health and Social Care

...Counselling in Health and Social Care – role, application and boundaries. Ethics and legal factors Everyone who works within the health and social care sector has to abide by the ethical guidelines. "Ethics can be defined as a set of moral principles or rules of conduct" (O'Farrell, 1999). The ethics framework states the guidelines that are expected of each counsellor and professional and it consists of three elements; Values, principles and also personal moral qualities. "Professional ethics may be viewed as the rightful domain of moral philosophy which is concerned with establishing principles for articulating what is 'good' and what is 'bad'." (Nelson-Jones, 2002) Six major ethical principles of the BACP are; self-respect, individual autonomy, beneficence (benefiting the client), non-maleficence (not harming the client), justice (fair distribution of services within the society) and fidelity (honouring promises and underpinning trust). These can be viewed for underpinning the practice of counsellors and superior practitioners. Ethical principles are well suited to examining the justification for particular decisions and actions. However, reliance on principles alone may detract from the importance of the practitioner's personal qualities and their ethical significance in the counselling or therapeutic relationship (BACP, 2013). Values inform principles and they are important to the counsellor to expressing their commitment to ethics. The values of counsellors......

...Unit 6 Personal and professional development in health and social care. P1: Explains the key influences on the personal learning processes of individuals. Kinaesthetic Kinaesthetic learning is a style in which a person learns through doing. It can be things such as sports, experimentation and drama opposed to listening to someone give a lecture or watching someone perform a demonstration. The best way for a kinaesthetic learner to take in information is by activities that involve touching, feeling, holding, doing, and practical experiences. Kinaesthetic learners often fidget, move their legs a lot or tap their feet, which can then lead them to be labelled as hyperactive. Also, they can be good in active jobs such as actors, musician, dancer or athletes and work well with their hands. They may be good at repairing work, sculpting, art, or working with various tools. Auditory Auditory learning is a style in which a person learns by listening. Its mainly listening to someone talk in lectures, speeches, and oral sessions although they must be able to hear exactly what is being said to understand completely. They have difficulty understanding instructions that are written. Because auditory learners have brilliant listening skills, the best career choices for them would be along the lines of a pathologist, disc jockey (DJ), and musician Visual Visual learners work best by seeing things, over hearing someone talk about them or creating something. Someone that is a visual......
