This key resource for trainee primary teachers helps them to understand and fulfil the new professional requirements for QTS. It focuses on a range of professional issues - including management of pupils' work, individual needs and equal opportunities, behaviour for learning and professional responsibilities outside teaching. Each chapter includes tasks, examples and further reading to highlight important concepts and key issues. New and revised chapters mean this third edition is up to date with the QTS Standards, latest documents and initiatives. Further, new reflective tasks and "Moving On" sections help trainees to build on the information in each chapter.
