Professional Standards: hands-up, anyone who thinks these are only relevant for individual teachers wishing to achieve QTLS or ATS status?

All standards can, in fact be used far more strategically, to drive positive change, meet external quality requirements (Ofsted) and to provide a shared language of ‘quality’ (Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment – OTLA).  Ian Grayling has produced a light-hearted video exploring this wider use of the  Professional Standards.

Coaching qualifications

Anyone thinking about ‘where to next?’ may find the following of interest:

Education and Training Apprenticeship Standards

The standards for the Level 3 Learning Mentor and Level 4 Assessor / Coach are available on the Institute for Apprenticeships website.  These are particularly, but not exclusively, suited to those colleagues supporting apprentices in the workplace.

Advanced Teacher Status (ATS)

If you are interested in how Advanced Practitioners, or any experienced teaching practitioner, might achieve Advanced Teacher Status, take a look at the Education and Training Foundation website.  If you wish to apply the Professional Standards more strategically, you may find that you can support multiple colleagues to gain professional recognition in this way.
