#1minPL - Self-evaluation and the Standards

Charlaine SimpsonCharlaine Simpson, Senior Education Officer

Self-evaluation should be a rigorous process that helps you to be critically reflective about yourself as a professional and your practice.

Self-evaluation and the Standards will involve:

  • Asking deep and searching questions about self and practice
  • Using the Professional Standards to inform and guide your reflections
  • Using other influencing factors such as school or department improvement plans, other standards or targets and issues relevant to your context
  • Using your ongoing reflections and enquiry into practice
  • Considering the needs of learners/colleagues in your context
  • Using evidence from a range of sources to inform and support your self-evaluation
