Confused!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Miss behavin!, Jun 9, 2011.

  1. Hello!
    In my application for a TLR post I have to include a vision statement and an action plan. I thought these were both these were written together - with the vision embedded within the action plan until someone said I need to write a separate page for the vision. What's the difference?! The deadline is tomorrow and now I'm panic,ing. The post is within the school I'm already at.
    Thanks.
     
  2. I have basically added a what the school is all about - its ethos (looked at some other examples).....I have however not added a full page for it....just two bullet points.
     
  3. I wouldnt expect it to be a page necessarily what youve done sounds fine. Your vision statement sets out your stall so to speak says where you see the aspect your discussing eg a subject a school whatever going and maybe why. The action plan is in essence how you plan to get there
     
  4. As the above poster said - Vision is where you want to be and what you want to achieve in the future, and the Action plan is a series of steps (your actions) that you will do to make this happen.
    For example:
    Vision - The school will be successful in this subject by doing x, being x and providing x wonderful experiences etc. This wouldnt really need to be more than a large paragraph.
    Action plan - In order to achieve this I will 1) buy x things 2) train x people 3) raise profile by x events - This would work best as a list of bullet points, possibly with a provisional timescale eg 'I expect it to take a year to raise staff confidence in this subject.'
    I would avoid 'waffling' as the more concise, the easier it will be to get across and for you to remember at interview.
    Good luck! x
     
  5. Oh ok. My vision statement is wrong then - I've kind of written a few lines about how i would describe the school now - and because it was so last minute I'm wondering why I did that - silly of me but it's done now. I was so organised and up to date with it bit can only hope for the best. Will keep this advice on board the future though - it makes things much clearer - thanks!
     
  6. I'm sure it'll be fine. Let us know how you get on [​IMG]
