I have only owned my copy of the National Curriculum and Teachers' Standards for 10 days and I cannot count the number of times I have referred to it - so much quicker and more convenient than searching for a relevant subject and year group online. All the first year students I have shown this book to are keen to get one ready for when they are out on placement.
