  12. 12. Get SMARTER at setting targets 12 S SPECIFIC Is the target precise and clear? i.e. to improve behaviour management is NOT specific, but to use behaviour management strategies to improve the beginning of lessons is. M MEASUREABLE Clear criteria for success. What is the end product, impact? i.e. How will the performance be judged against the target? Consider what evidence there could be that would indicate success, and how it could be used in the QTS portfolio. A ATTAINABLE Can the target really be achieved in the time/resources available? i.e. What opportunities are available? R RELEVANT In number, complexity, stage of development and purpose. i.e. Does the target link to the phase of training and the standards that are currently being working towards? Have the targets been discussed with school tutors? Good targets should challenge and stretch. T TIME How long will it take, short, medium and long term/date specific. i.e. in the next lesson with group …or by the end of the unit …. E EVALUATED What impact has the target had on performance, pupils, practice, policy? i.e. will the evidence be found in lesson plans, evaluations, lesson analysis forms? Discuss targets at weekly meetings and record R REVIEWED Is there a need to have a follow up or new targets set? i.e. ensure that targets are reflected upon and feedback into practice. If a target is not met ask why that might be. Review at weekly meetings, interim or end of phase, target setting tutorials Setting targets is crucial to the mentee's development.
