Does an ECT need to keep a file of evidence to show how they are meeting the Teachers’ Standards?
No, there is no requirement to keep a file of evidence. We would suggest that ECTs do keep a record for themselves of where they can find documents that would evidence them consistently meeting standards over the Induction period. Schools should be mindful of the workload of ECTs, and this should be done in the least burdensome way possible. ECTs should make use of the documents that they regularly use a part of their day-to-day practice.
If an ECT moves schools during their Induction period, it will be useful for them to take copies of documents that would provide them with evidence if asked for by the new school.
