    • How will YOU begin to develop an approach to learning?
    • Where do you stand NOW?
    • Where do your ideas come from? Borrowed?
  • 7. Ethical debates
    • A personal philosophy of education
    • The values attached to this central philosophy
    • How such values appear when ‘presenting’ our selves to our learners (verbal/non-verbal)
    • How we interpret ideas of professionalism and how this behaviour is interpreted by others = learners/colleagues/external agencies
    • Thought.. are teachers role models? Should they be?
  • 8. Challenging thoughts …..
    • All teachers are creative: creativity is not subject linked
    • We are not the ‘friends’ of the learners
    • There is a line we do not cross!
    • Learners need consistency
    • Teaching is a conflict situation
    • We manage the dualism of the role: teacher and subject
    • Teachers do not operate in isolation
  • 9. Teachers do not operate in isolation
    • We operate within a framework of professional
    • practice and standards
    • Qualified Teacher Status
    • QTS Standards cover three areas:
      • Professional Attributes
      • Professional Knowledge
      • Professional Skills
    • ‘ Trainee teachers are also required to pass on-line Skills Tests to achieve the QTS Standards in Numeracy, Literacy, and ICT’
    • Thought… why do we need to meet Professional Standards?
  • 10. Extract from IOE Faculty documentation 2009
    •  
    • ‘ Issue: …..the first disciplinary panel had taken place for a trainee teacher who had made inappropriate comments on Facebook…’
    • What is your reaction to this comment?
    • What does the comment tell you about the role of the
    • teacher?
  • 11. Professional Standards for teachers QTS
    • Follow up reference: Frameworks Q3
    • Be aware of the professional duties of teachers and the statutory framework within which they work’
    • ‘ Be aware of the policies and practices of the workplace and share in collective responsibility for their implementation’
  • 12. Being a professional includes:
    • understanding the conflict between a personal and
    • professional identity
    • taking risks within the framework and professional
    • boundaries
    • not being daunted by ‘new’ agendas
    • seeing the profession as an opportunity to be
    • innovative whilst operating, confidently, within a set
    • of professional standards.
