Cheerful EYE CYPW and CCLD - about plagiarism for learners of children's workforce Diploma and NVQ

Level 3 Diploma Early years Educator
CYPW - Children and Young People's Workforce
CCLD - childrens care, learning and development NVQ

Understanding plagiarism

Plagiarism is taking another person's work, word for word and presenting it as your own.

Copy and Paste
is a term that describes just how easy it is to commit plagiarism intentionally or accidentally.

When submitting written work for any qualification, that work needs to show exactly how a learner knows and understands a particular subject area or criteria.

It's what the completion certificate aim to proove for the professional that's holding it.

All this can only happen by reading, researching and getting to grips with the information you are being asked and need to find out about. After that you'll be able to write what's necessary in your own way, using your own words, demonstrating what your knowledge is and also be able to recognise the reasons for why knowing is important.

You deserve to receive the support necessary whilst you complete your course, as you discover the extent of expectation involved with a chosen career choice and whether you've paid for your course personally or not.

Course providers will explain the dangers of plagiarism and what it means if you submit blocks of text that are then found to exist identically on the internet.

Here, silkysteps' forum aims to support anyone with an interest in providing quality experiences for children in their early years but please avoid plagiarising any work you produce by copying and pasting which would then run the risk of it being made invalid when your work is handed in/submitted for verification.

Please use the information you find on silkysteps to inform what you already know and as sign-posts to sources that you can quote.

What you already know might be through your working practice, the advice shared between colleagues, materials provided by tutors, reading and researching in sector endorsed books and papers.

Remember to always use your own words to write, re-write, to understand and re-phase the information that you find.

Practitioners have the ability to influence the lives of everyone they come into contact with and those that they are unaware they influence - friends of friends, colleagues of colleagues, extended family members they never see but whom word is passed on to... Knowing how to communciate with people and agencies to support the commitment of making children's early years experiences the absolute best involves your specifically unique way of saying things and doing things, you can only do that by being you, not someone else

Plagiarism from Plagiarism.org
Copyright infringement from wikipedia.org

These are two important factors when undertaking any form of written assignment and these external websites can help to show how it's possible to avoid and understand the words and what the terms mean.

Avoiding Plagiarism
Remember ideas are food for thought, if it's something that you've read and it's been provided by someone else, re-read it, evaluate it, analyse it and then write it all over again using your own words and experiences to show just how you understand what's being discussed, explained and how it relates to your setting and your professional practice.

Please, respect the information that members on silkysteps.com take the time to provide/publish, whether that's as a guide or as a reply to another member's request for help. Their work is not yours. Read what's given then make it your own by writing it from your own perspective.

If you have any concerns, worries or questions about plagiarism please get in touch with your course provider, trainer, tutor, assessor. Don't risk invalidating all your hardwork and effort by not knowing or thinking it's not important enough to ask about.

Citing your references and sources
What is Citation? from plagiarism.org.uk

Crediting sources and avoiding plagiarism from UCL.ac.uk
and referencing guide from worc.ac.uk

Writing an assignment
What makes up an assignment or essay
An excellent explanation from a forum member ~ 3 part essay
Synopsis - Summary - Blurb (usually found on the back page of a book )


Enjoy the site and everything it holds. Post questions whenever needed, reply to others whenever possible and contribute your own experiences of working towards this qualification, within the childcare sector .. and more importantly pop back to share the celebration of passing xx
