Secretary of State Damian Hinds has announced the DfE's initial response to the report ‘Strengthening Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and Improving Teacher Career Progression’, at Friday's National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) annual conference. Changes include extending the induction period from one to two years, while he blasted Mocksteds and triple marking as "costly distractions". 


With the 2015-16 academic year coming to a close, it’s time for teachers and staff alike to reflect on their achievements and progress over the past year, and start the process of improvement planning for the next.

Damien Roberts, business development manager at SchooliP by Derventio, explains how to make the most of self-evaluation, ensuring it is as effective as possible.
