#1minPL - How do I engage with the Standards?

Charlaine SimpsonCharlaine Simpson, Senior Education Officer

The Standards provide practitioners with a reflection tool to support professional learning.

They can support critical reflection and thinking about your current role and practice, and help you to identify your professional learning needs.

Each Standard has the same format covering:

  • Professional values and personal commitment
  • Professional knowledge and abilities
  • Professional skills and abilities.

 How do I engage with the Standards?

As a practitioner
Using the Standards for self-reflection and self-evaluation as part of the Professional Update process and setting professional learning targets.

As a line manager
To support professional dialogue through PRD, by asking challenging questions, celebrating successes and supporting a focus on impact for learners.
