I’m getting extremely annoyed with the Society for Education and Training who take subscription money annually for doing very little and refuse to acknowledge I have QTLS!
They are getting pretty rude in their emails now and I’ve sent the statement that I received on getting QTLS status. They need to sort their records out and not tell me “You do not currently hold QTLS status. If you want to check that with my colleagues in head office please email” Shouldn’t they be the ones checking?! Aaaaaaaargh.
“David, many thanks for your extensive, well-documented and thoughtful Professional Formation application for QTLS. The evidence demonstrated excellent practice and a professional approach across an extensive career in the sector.
In the areas of subject currency and teaching and learning, you have attached considerable evidence which demonstrated an on-going commitment to improvements in training and development in your subject specialism. Teacher trainers and advanced practitioners should model best practice and this is something you clearly do. Your use of a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats analysis was an excellent method for exploring development needs in relation to professional development planning. Your professional development programme was well planned and will provide opportunities to enhance your professional practice. You have been able to provide a rich and detailed range of evidence that demonstrated your ability to reflect on the positive impact of CPD on your professional role.
Your standardised and personalised evidence fully met all requirements for Professional Formation and we are very pleased to tell you that your application has been successful. Congratulations on an exceptional webfolio. We wish you well in your future career.”
