Dear Theo, I am becoming quite a regular on here...

  1. as I desperately apply for jobs! My latest job application requires a supporting statement showing how your qualities and experience are relevant for the post. The form states that you should pay attention to the national standards for the post. I have not come across this before - does it mean the QTS standards? If so, should I refer to them explicitly or not?
    Thanks,
    rainbowsandrain.

    Glad to see you!

    Now this is good! You can use the national standards nicely and explicitly in. . . an executive summary! That will show beautifully that you comply!Probably means QTS -





    not likely to be national standards for Headteachers ;-)

    But google just to be sure there isn't anything else.

    I haven't got a clue what these are, so, should I ever be offered an interview in the future, I'm interested in the answer too!
     
  5. Thank you for the replies!

    I have googled 'national standards' and nothing comes up so I'm assuming they are referring to QTS.

    In my application, should I say something like (this is off the top of my head and not something I would actually write) 'my recent teaching placements have improved my knowledge of assessment (Q12)' or would the statement without the reference to the standard number suffice?
    I hope that makes sense!
    And Lara, thanks again for the lovely post on the flowers thread for me - I tried to send you a PM to thank you but it didn't seem to work.

    No?






    don't put the standard number in, that'll just look weird. I had imagined you using them in your exec summary, of course.

    I wonder if they're a bit ahead of themselves and mean the national standards for teachers which I believe come into force in September alng with the new appraisal system.
