Professional standards

The Education and Training Foundation released a set of aspirational standards in May 2014. The  Professional Standards provide a framework for teachers and trainers to critically appraise their own practice and improve their teaching through Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Almost 1,000 sector professionals were involved in the development of the standards to ensure they accurately reflected practitioners needs. 

The 2014 Professional Standards:

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