The Professional Standards:

  • set out clear expectations of effective practice in education and training
  • enable teachers, trainers and other practitioners to identify areas for their own professional development
  • support initial teacher education
  • provide a national reference point that organisations can use to support the development of their staff.

What’s in the professional teaching standards?

The Education and Training Foundation commissioned a range of education providers throughout 2014 – 15 to create a set of ‘how to’ guides for the standards. The full set of documents can be downloaded from the Excellence Gateway.  

The teaching Professional Standards were written following an extensive review and consultation period across the Education and Training sector. Read the details of this work.
