I am an NQT. My question is whether a evidence file is actually necessary. The TDA 2007 documentation listing the 41 standards says clearly, and in bold, on the first page that as long as tthe NQT is proceeding normally through the schools induction process an additional eveidenc base is not required. My question is whether other NQT are being told to produce files of evidence, and if so if any one had been able to successfully resist! A recent local authority visitor has asked for a file on the assumption that the file is a document we should make available.
