This is what being a professional is all about' - Times Educational Supplement, Book of the Week. Teaching professionals need to be able to successfully respond to change, and when necessary drive change within schools. To accomplish this, teachers need to be secure in their understanding of their place within the profession and their teaching identity. The focus of this book is upon enabling teachers to explore new ways of working with children, with colleagues and with communities. This book provides teachers working towards Advanced Skills Teacher or Chartered Teacher status, and those on other CPD courses, with an essential text to assist in this process of personal and professional reflection and development planning.
