The National Curriculum and the Teachers' Standards



February 2018 | 272 pages | Learning Matters

The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum. The Teachers' Standards underpin professional practice and all teachers need to work towards and within this framework.

This two-in-one handbook presents the National Curriculum Programmes of Study for ALL curriculum subjects for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 PLUS the complete Teachers' Standards, making it a handy reference copy whether you are in training or practice. Also included is an introduction by renowned education theorists Dylan Wiliam focusing on the need for a broad and balanced curriculum in schools.  

A must-have resource for all teachers and trainee teachers!

A handy, accessible text containing the teachers' standards and the national curriculum in a well-structured format - this book will be an invaluable resource for trainee teachers, and will be a useful point of reference throughout the lifespan of their teaching career!

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.
