Hi. I am in my 5th year of teaching and starting to think about applying for threshold (if that's the correct term). I've read and heard contradictory advice in the past about what I need to do. Some teachers I know have had to produce lots of evidence in a portfolio to show they meet the relevant standards. Other heads seem happy to go by performance management meeting records and lesson observations. What happens in your school? Any info will be gratefully received. Thank you.
