    What sort of help do you want?

    No one can answer the questions but you, so just answer them honestly.

    Then make a list of the 9 teacher standards and think about how you are doing with each of them.

    Once you know where you are with each of the standards you can decide what you need to do to improve.

    Hi Blueskydreaming

    Thank you for your input. I know It has to be done by me , no one can do that for me. I did not ask to do it for me. In fact, I requested , how to answer these 20 questions.

    I know what they mean but I am struggling to put that in words.

    You didn't ask for help on how to answer the 20 questions. You said 'Help, we have a tutorial', then you listed the questions.

    Ask your PGCE mentor at uni what they mean and how to respond to them. You are obviously not a native English speaker, so I'm sure your mentor will be sympathetic.

    If you are indeed a PGCE student...

    I suspect you are overthinking these questions. Go through and answer honestly with reference to recent experiences in school. (As an aside, I'm interested to know where these questions have come from. Why isn't the provider just using the Teacher's Standards?)
