SHC22Task 1; Links to learning outcome. On-going personal development.My role as a Nursery Nurse is to provide care and education to these children. I organise, lead and supervise activities with children to make sure they are getting the most out of the learning. I will help them to learn to count, reciting the alphabet and even begin to write their name. I help at mealtimes, sleep time and assist with personal care – such as changing a wet or soiled nappy. Being a nursery worker is a full-time job, ensuring all children are safe and happy whilst in our care. At the end of each day I will report back to parents about how their child(s) day was and ensure parents are always happy and aware of what is happening/happened that day. If a child has fallen or hurt themselves, I will assist the child in making sure there is no dirt in or around the wound and will provide an ice pack, with plasters if need be. If it is a head injury this gets reported to my manager straight away and a call to parents will be made. If a child is ill, I will report to my manager, I will have taken the temperature already, written this down and provided the evidence for my manager to look through, Whilst making sure all extra bits of clothing i.e. jumpers are taken off if the child is hot, also providing lots of water. Whilst at work, I will observe all children’s behaviour and will note down good things and things that aren’t so great, This will be shown to my manager if it raises concerns and this will be dealt with in a professional manner. Working in a Nursery I will have to sign the child in and out so we know what time they arrived and what time that child had left – this is also a part of safeguarding. Identify standards that influence the way your role is carried out.The standards that influence the way I work could include:The policies and procedures, Codes of practice, Regulations and the National Occupational Standards. The policies and procedures are the rules that are set by the company so that all members of staff know exactly what their job role is and that they must be followed at all times, to ensure the job is carried out in the correct way. The national occupational standards are the result of our knowledge and understanding of our job role to ensure work is set at a high standard. Once we complete exams it shows we are competent to do our job the way it should be done.The regulations are guidelines set in place by legislations for employees to follow to certify the standards necessary by law are met. The abilities for care codes of practice is a list of records for all careers to follow to guarantee all employees do the best value of work. – Be liable by making sure you can answer for your actions or errors.- Encourage and maintain the privacy, dignity, rights, health and wellbeing of people who always use health and care services and their careers.- Work in partnership with your colleagues to safeguard the delivery of high quality, safe and empathetic healthcare, care and support.- Transmit in an open, and successful way to promote the health, safety and wellbeing of people who use health and care facilities and their careers.- Respect a person’s right to confidentiality.- Attempt to improve the quality of healthcare, care and support through ongoing skilled development.- Maintain and encourage equality, diversity and inclusion.Describe ways to ensure that your personal attitudes or beliefs do not obstruct the quality of your work.If I am unhappy at work I do not bring it into the classroom, or raise it with any other colleagues. I go straight to my manager or director and arrange a meeting. This usually gets solved straight away and dealt with in a professional manner. My personal beliefs do not obstruct the quality of my work as I think everybody is equal and its always great to learn about new things.
