This is probably a really stupid post. I've read all the FAQs and government sites I could and searched around on here. I am on M5. I want to make sure that I am ready for next year when I need to apply to go on from M6 to UP1. I've been reading a lot about the standards and I'm not sure if I actually need to provide evidence that I am actually meeting the core standards or the post-threshold standards or none. It seems to be that if you apply and have two successful Performance Management Reviews then you go on to UP1. Do I need to have stuff to do with the standards in the PMRs or does it not matter? I'm in charge of ICT KS3 so my PMR targets will be to do with updating the SOW and putting stuff on the VLE etc. In other words, should I start trying to do extra stuff now that I am "contributing to the professional development of colleagues" etc etc now? Sorry if these are dumb questions!
