Effective target setting - a Brunel Secondary
ITE Partnership development priority area
 Students, PCMs, mentors and departmental colleagues
understanding and using the Profile level descriptions
effectively and consistently
 Aspirations for all student teachers to meet the high
level descriptions for the Teachers’ Standards
 Designing professional learning experiences that
support student teachers meeting these aspirations
 Effective feedback – verbal and written
 Effective target setting – SMART and supports student
teachers in meeting the high level descriptions
 A continuous process of professional learning

The following documents provide key information which identifies
professional learning needs at the start of the three phases of the course.

Informs the student teacher’s learning priorities for the phase. This is
completed following discussions with the university tutor and school
mentor.

Activity 1 – Target setting and designing for
initial needs
 Review the information you have gathered from the
Overview Profile and Initial Needs Analysis for Student
Teacher X.
 Use this to complete the ‘Action and Support’ column of
the Initial Needs Analysis document.
Weekly Professional Learning Record (WPLR)
(PGCert p21/UG p25)
In preparation for the weekly timetabled meeting:
 The Student Teacher reflects on the week’s professional learning and
collates evidence against targets that were set for the week;
 The reflective process includes considering targets met and possible
targets for the following week;
 The Student Teacher completes most sections of the WPLR in advance
of the meeting.
In the meeting:
 Professional learning and evidence for the week is discussed, using the
record as a focus;
 Focussed targets are set in relation to the Teachers’ Standards for the
following week;
 Some of these targets feed into the Lesson Feedback Record (LFR);
 The content of the meeting is recorded on the WPLR.
Brunel Lesson Feedback Record (PGCert
appendix/ UG p57-63)


Number of Lesson Feedback Records (LFRs) required:
 Foundation phase: 2 x LFRs per week or 4 x per fortnight.
 Development and consolidation phase: 3 x LFRs per week or 6 x per
fortnight.
 Transition phase into first post/end of consolidation phase: total of 3 x
transition LFRs, which use Ofsted grading of lessons.
Provided for the observer by student for targeted lessons: blank LFR; copy of
lesson plan; Teachers’ Standards laminate; other info i.e. seating plan,
resources etc.
Completed LFR accompanied by annotations on the student’s actual lesson
plan. (Annotate lesson plans for lessons without LFRs).
Weekly TS targets included by student in advance on LFR.
Lesson specific TS targets drawn from last LFR and again included in advance
on LFR.
Comments on pupil progress and achievement against intentions for the lesson.
Strengths and targets using TS and TS evidence outside of these targets too.
Descriptors which set aspirations for high quality lessons mapped to TS.
Professional Learning Activities (PGCert
appendix/UG p17)
 Meeting student teacher’s individual learning needs
 Addressing partnership priority areas (which include
national priority areas)
 Cross referenced to Teachers’ Standards – evidence of
learning
 Facilitate learning outside of class teaching
Activity 2 – Target setting and designing for
ongoing weekly learning needs
 Consider the WPLR and associated evidence for
Student Teacher X for two consecutive weeks. In
preparation for week 3 for this student please complete
the following:
 Complete the Teachers’ Standard related targets section
at the end of week 2’s WPLR in preparation for week 3;
 Identify which of these targets would appear in the LFRs
for week 3.

Activity 3 – Target setting and designing for
next learning phase needs
 Review the end of phase profile for Student Teacher X.
 Use the information to set targets for the Development
Phase for 3 of the Teachers’ Standards.
 Look at the Professional Learning Action Plan (PGCert
p38/UG p13) to see how the profile document is used to
agree and set targets for the next phase.
