Although it is important to identify where we are now, it is not enough to stop there. We need to reflect upon how we can develop the skills where we are less confident and how we can transfer the skills in which we are confident and competent.
Complete the audit below, using the information from the table above.
|Skills already developed||How will I use these||How do I know (evidence)**|
|Self confidence||I will use self-confidence as I will be teaching in front of a class daily and have at least 25 pairs of eyes on me. I will need to have confidence in my lesson planning and have the confidence to carry out my lesson clearly as the children involved will be listening intently to instructions that I give them.|
|Take Risks||As a teacher I will need to take risks to help get out of my comfort zone, and help reach and inspire children on a new and different level, whether this be through a new lesson idea or a school trip.|
|Organise and Plan||
|Debate formally and informally||I will further develop this skill by conversations I may have with others in my university class, but also in discussions in seminars and online.|
|Listening to Others||
|Act as a leader||
** This section should be completed as you identify when/where/how you have used/developed these skills.
