This analysis of the skills initial teachers
should be able to demonstrate at different stages in their programme, although a
guide, offers a simplistic picture. This is because each of the skills
demonstrated at more than one stage will be demonstrated with increased
sophistication in relation to breadth and depth. Hence the programme is not
about ‘can do’ but how well the work can be done on a continuum from novice to
expert. This table does not take account of the values nor the personal skills
and attributes that also underpin recommended programmes.
