Communicating effectively

ByRichard Woolley

Q4 Communicate effectively with children, young people, colleagues, parents and carers.

TEACHERS RELATE TO a broad spectrum of people within their work. The range of people with a stake in a school is diverse and each has different interests, outlooks, backgrounds and concerns. Effective communication requires that teachers are aware of the individual needs and attitudes of different stakeholders and take these into account when fostering relationships.
