The standards reflect a model of professional accountability but also of professional excellence.
Teachers often face tensions between the ‘professional artistry’ of their role and the more technical aspects associated with exam results as a key indicator of school performance.
Reflective practice as you begin teaching will enhance your ability to deepen and broaden your knowledge and understanding of the core strands of the professional standards throughout your teaching career.
Choosing what to reflect on is important; the purpose should always be linked to improving teaching and learning.
