Reflective Practice. You should be doing this every single day as a matter of course. Action Plan - this is bound to be around somewhere. I attended a meeting with the principal about this where they reviewed the last year and what we will all be doing in the next academic year. Then everyone griped about what they did or didn't want for their particular department. I have forgotten what was said. (Boring). However, your department must have a plan for the next year - how you are going to improve XYZ, change of marking, change of tracking, improve discipline, improve attainment, focus on G&T, focus on WWB, improve parental engagement, extra-curricular activities. Again, I have sat through some totally boring meetings outlining what we are going to do next year. Surely you must have a plan - or is your school inadequate? Your essay, too, should have a plan! It should consist of an introduction outlining what you are going to do - 500 words; then I suggest you cover about 4-5 topics/steps - each one should consist of 800-1,000 words; each section should be coherent and lead fluently on to the next section. Finally, you should write a conclusion of about 500 words which sums up the essence of your essay, what you have discovered, what conclusions you have drawn and what you are going to do about it. Your essay plan should have been submitted to your tutor for approval, advice and discussion, with area which may need to be improved, discarded, altered. I have never even heard of NPQML but I bet I could pass it standing on my head.
