Im currently undertaking this. You have to evidence a range of standards to prove that you are aware of recent findings and guidance and always work towards best practice.
I have created a file of evidence. I will soon be having a meeting with my head for her to check it over and ensure I have reached each standard, she will sign and send to the association. Then they may ask for evidence of a few standards.
I get a logo to use and its another string to my bow in PSHE.
Well I had the meeting with the head who has signed the file off. So soon I guess Ill be hearing from the association to see if Im awarded charter teacher status. As far as I know Ill be one of the first. It has really upped the status of PSHE in my school. Well worth it.
Head also decided to observe me before sending off the file. Was nice to see she cares about my practice and she seemed well impressed. I rather enjoyed showing her what can be achieved in a PSHE lesson as opposed to the all to familiar 'circle time' to sort out problems.
Now just waiting for the reply from the association....
