Teacher student relationship should be friendly

In general a teacher is teaching well to a student, that student would never want to miss his teacher. He would be interested to communicate all his upgrading to the teacher as and when it is required. There would not be any exam tension for a student, if the student is close with the teacher. The reason is the teacher would be always guiding the students focusing to the exams. The exams would be easier to the student if the student is able to understand all the lessons. In schools all the lessons are important, but the student is interested in learning only wished lessons and obtaining marks from well known lessons. The management is checking all the teachers frequently and also the student’s progress. The student progress is very important for the management. In case the teacher is well versed in teaching all the lessons, this reflects to the students. All the students in the class would be able to answer to all the lessons, which is more important. Now this Core Learn’s Teacher Professional Learning Programs is available for all the teachers. Once the teacher is learning how to teach all the students without differentiating the students that teacher would be highlighted by the students and as well as by the management. The management would be quite happy if all the students are able to score well in the main exam, of course it is a duty of the teacher to conduct monthly test. During the monthly test it could be understandable the student is able to learn the lesson or lacking in the lessons. The lessons would be easy to all the students, only if the teacher teaches the lessons in the good manner.


Teaching is an art many teachers do not understand this art, of course if the teacher is able to understand how to teach and what way to teach, a teacher would not be committing any mistake in teaching. This is the reason in many schools the supervisor is checking only the teachers. Of course the supervisor would be asking some questions to the students and point out the mistake. At times the mistake with the student, who is absent to the class for many days such student would be warned by the management. At the same time, if the teacher is committing mistake in teaching lessons teacher would be advised how to teach better.

Supported internships at Hereward College

Hereward College, whichspecialises in educating young people with learning disabilities and additional needs, has been praised by Ofsted inspectors who said students there “enjoy their learning” and “feel safe and protected”. At Hereward College we believe that emotional self-awareness and resilience is central to achieving life success, independence and well-being.

Supported internships are study programmes aimed at young people (aged 16-24) with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan to gain experience in the workplace within a supported environment and provide a platform for the young people to further develop their skills and experience in a structured way.


Learners take part in the programme with one of Hereward College’s partner employers and spend up to 30 hours a week working in different areas to gain valuable experience with the support of an on-site Job Coach.


Interns are onsite at Hereward College one day a week to undertake a City & Guilds qualification in Employability Skills and can take maths and English qualifications suitable to their level.


Hereward College’s supported internship programme is open to both external and internal applications. For more information on the application process contact or call 024 7642 6175


Hereward College is a college for young people with disabilities and additional needs based in Coventry. Since 1971 we have been offering inclusive provision and specialist facilities for both day and residential learners with complex disabilities and learning difficulties.


Our vision is to prepare our learners for the next stage of their lives, providing them with outstanding employability skills and greater control over their future. We have a focus on creating independent individuals who can make more of their own decisions about work, education, health and living.


We have extensive partnerships with employers and an expanding supported internship study programme. The internships build upon all the skills that the young people have developed in college and extend them even further in real work situations.


Political activity is also important to the Hereward community and we encourage our learners to have a ‘voice’ in the issues that affect them. We also support the Natspec and NUS campaigns which addresses the inequalities faced by young people with learning difficulties or disabilities.


We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our learners and our hugely committed and dedicated staff which support them.

Mining Solutions to Minimise Environmental Strain

Not all mines are created equal, and even if they are not all mining solutions are the same. Some are more successful at minimising the effect of materials released while retrieving precious metals, coal or whatever the mine’s aim might be to find and sell.

The Effect of Mining on its Surroundings

The truth about mining is that even when done as effectively as possible, with extensive specialist mining studies completed before hand and implementing mining solutions for reduced pollution, mines do damage their surroundings. However, the extent of toxins, destruction and disruption can be significantly reduced with the right mining solutions put in place.

People may consider the disruption caused by mining to be solely due to the building of a mine and digging into the earth. The reality of opening mines in Africa, and especially in South Africa’s history, is that the mine completely changes the way an environment is used.

History tends to repeat itself and Johannesburg became the bustling hub it is today due to extended mining activities. It saw people flock to the mines in the thousands and the city was built around it. Starting a mine requires homes and facilities for workers and can have as drastic an impact on an environment as the establishment of a city. People effect the environment in turn and their residential activities add to the environmental disruption through the building of homes, services and entertainment centres.

When you see what effect a mine can have on a location and the way it attracts people like moths to a flame, in search of employment opportunities, one can understand why it has such a profound effect on everything around it.

Common Pollutants from Mines

The problem with mining solutions is that even if they cater to the pollutants from mines as they occur they can often neglect the lingering influences of said toxins. In the past this has meant coal fires that burn for decades, constantly releasing toxic chemicals. This can cause a mine to do more damage than good.

It is not unheard of for mines to lose investors when a mine isn’t bringing in enough revenue and doing more permanent damage than is worth continuing with. This requires a mine turnaround strategy to salvage whatever possible and mining solutions to be implemented as a means of damage control.
