Another member of the Outreach team, Janet Storey, has gained Chartered Teacher status recently.
Preparing the submission for recognition is an enormous amount of work. There is a 10,000 word reflection paper, accompanied by a portfolio demonstrating the action the teacher has taken to achieve the standard.
There are 4 key components to achieving the standard:
Professional values and personal commitment;
Professional knowledge and understanding;
Professional and personal attributes;
The basic assumption is that the Chartered Teacher is characterised by 4 professional values and personal commitments:
1. effectiveness in promoting learning in the classroom.
2. critical self-evaluation and development.
3. collaboration and influence.
4. educational and social values.
Many congratulations to Janet.
