Revised Professional Standards 

“The overall purpose of the professional standards is to raise standards of teaching and to improve learner outcomes throughout Wales. The professional standards articulate the understandings, knowledge and values that our teachers, leaders and Higher Level Teaching Assistants must demonstrate. They provide a framework to enable practitioners to identify their performance management objectives and to choose the most appropriate professional development activities”.
