For teacher sub-standard 3a, you need to demonstrate that you consistently demonstrate a critical understanding of developments in the subject and curriculum areas, and promote the value of scholarship

The types of evidence you can use to showcase this are:

  • Attendance of/ contribution / role modelling acquisition of new understanding in staff meetings, INSET, other CPD

  • Policy and planning review and scrutiny

  • Impact on learning – outcome of learning – progress/books

  • Relevant pedagogy – TES articles, own research etc.

  • CPD records

  • Lesson observations/ Observations from learning walks

  • Pupil and parent voice/ pupil attitudes/ pupil progress

Remember that the evidence in isolation isn’t enough, you will need to annotate it to signpost exactly where/how you are meeting the standard. If you are using an article from your research, you should try and write up notes on the three I’s (intent, implementation, impact) to say how the article or research has influenced your teaching. You could also refer to the research in your lesson planning and/or lesson evaluations.

You can use photographic evidence to support your evidence for this standard. Be sure to anonymise any student work or data by blacking out names or identifying details. You could use witness statements to support some of this evidence or a copy of CPD notes signed and dated by your mentor.
