Review quote

This straightforward and accessible book will be a valuable addition to every trainee teacher's toolkit. It not only provides essential guidance on the components of each Standard, the theory that underpins them, and advice on how to evidence them, but also brings them alive in the classroom with practical examples and useful top tips. -- Hilary Smith This is a useful, practical guide for student teachers and NQTs to support their ability to evidence The Teachers' Standards. Supported by academic literature and theory, each chapter unpicks the language used in each of the standards and makes it more accessible; this would make it easier to engage in professional dialogue and to set professional targets. The layout of the text makes it easy to use, especially to dip in and out of. A valuable companion text. -- Paula Stone
