1. ETF Professional Standards self-assessment

The Professional Standards self-assessment Tool is available here:


Use this self-assessment activity to identify your strengths and areas for development. Note these in a personal development plan (PDP) or an individual learning plan (ILP), depending on which of these you usually use in your work.

You will use this ETF online self-evaluation to capture your GCSE Mathematics teaching confidence at the start and end of the course, using a five point scale. Give a fair but critical appraisal of your confidence when you complete the self-evaluation.

We have supplied a sample PDP in the module overview document (see activity 2 below) in case you would like to use/ adapt it for this activity.

Access the Module Guide via the course Padlet here and familiarise yourself with the overall structure of the Padlet.

Note that you may need to change browser (e.g. to Chrome or Firefox) if the Padlet fails to load properly or if you see an empty Padlet. Some of the files are too large to open directly from the Padlet and you will be prompted to open these in a new window.
