So I have been speaking to a few fellow NQT's who have been told that they don't need to complete a teaching standards file? My professional mentor is being very strict and saying I should do one but collating evidence for each of the teaching standards like I did while I'm training seems to me a waste of time when I'm having regular observations and have to submit to my mentor every half term exactly what I've done with the additional 10% I get. I spent ages doing it when I was training and no one even looked at it! Has anyone else heard whether we definitely need to complete an evidence file for the teaching standards? Has anyone got a reference to something that I can show to my mentor?
