Abstract

Key learning points Transitions in your professional life, such as changing school or key stage, can lead to what feels like a decline in professional skills. Requirements constantly to evaluate your practice can lead to superficial reflection. Deep and focused reflection on every aspect of your professional life is not possible. By identifying what is really important at any given point, and reflecting in detail on small aspects of your work, you can ultimately make a significant difference to the bigger picture. Using frameworks for reflection can help you to focus on what is important to you in the here and now. In this way, you can use your experience to apply ‘practical wisdom’ in new contexts, so that transitions become easier over time.
