Ken Olsen, President of Digital Equipment Corp, 1977

Task 1 What QTS standards relate to ICT? You will to be split into 7 groups and given a copy of the QTS standards. You must work together to discuss each one, then pick out the standards directly related to ICT. You are to write these of post it notes in order to share with whole group.

*The term e-learning can be defined as a mixture of different learning methods delivered to the learner through information technology in ways that engage and educate.

Task 1 Feedback Task 2 How can we meet the QTS standards relating to ICT? Working with a partner go on to choose one of the standards and think of the ways you can ensure it may be met. Write these down in the form of a mind map.
Task 1, 2 and 3
Discussion points Are the standards what you expected?

Is ICT an important part of teaching?

Do any of you feel you will require additional support in order to meet these standards?

What is BlueSky is an online area which can be used to store and record evidence of your development throughout the year.
The QTS Professional Skills Test

If more support or practise is needed, please make a note of this on your session evaluation.

BlueSky your mentors on completion of the test. Task 3 There are practise tests available which we will now have a go at:


Please have a go at this and let me know how you get on. Make a note on the session evaluation of any areas you feel further support would be beneficial.

QTS stands for Qualified Teacher Status. This is awarded to an individual who has met all of the QTS standards and is deemed to uphold the professional code of the General Teaching Council of England. Only a teacher with QTS can be employed in a maintained school on a permanent contract, with pay according to the qualified teacher pay scale and access to continuing professional development and pension contributions.

BlueSky? http://www.blueskyeducation.co.uk/
The Education Act 2002 stated that teachers without QTS could not teach in England unless they fell within one of the limited exceptions. One of these was "trainee teachers who have yet to pass their skills tests". Between 01 May 2001 and 31 August 2008, trainee teachers who would have gained QTS, but for the fact they had not passed all the skills tests by the end of training, were allowed to teach for up to five years (the five year grace period).

During this period, these individuals could only be employed as unqualified teachers; they were not newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and could not begin induction. On 1 September 2007, the regulations changed to remove the five year grace period.

You must complete the skills tests as soon as possible in order to avoid later complications.

Changes to skills tests regulations The ICT Skills Test All of you must complete the ICT Skills Test as soon as possible. We would like confirmation that you have achieved this is before the Christmas break (17th December 2010 at the latest). You have self-supported study time during the October half-term to book your tests so no excuses!

Before you can book and take your QTS skills tests, you need to register online. In order to register you will need a registration number and an e-mail address. To prevent confirmation e-mails going straight into your junk mail box, please add the following e-mail addresses into your address book before registering for the tests: skillstests@pearson.com and gtnsupport@pearson.com.

Your registration number has not yet been confirmed but Ann will pass these on to you when they come through. Until then you may practise as many times as you would like.

It is possible to take the tests as many times as you need so why not have a go? You may know more than you think. Have a go! Skills Test Format The test will focus on a scenario set in the context of your professional role as a teacher. This could include professional training, events in the school calendar, educational visits, organisations visiting schools, school productions, school publications, school clubs and organisations, and links between schools.
The test consists of five real-life tasks based around various professional scenarios. Each task further consists of four connected sub-tasks. At the beginning of the test, you will have an opportunity to read an outline of the context and the tasks to be completed. The tests have been designed to allow a few minutes reading and planning time.

Test length: 35 minutes (unless special arrangements have been made).

The tasks are completed using applications which provide the generic features and functions commonly available in commercially available applications. The tasks are designed to be equivalent in both length and number of marks.

To carry out the tasks in the test, it is assumed that you have basic ICT skills, for example, navigating around the desktop, using folders, software applications and on-screen menus, highlighting, selecting and opening items using a mouse, and printing.

You should practise your ICT skills using the presentation, e-mail, text editor, spreadsheet and web browser packages most commonly available to you. The tests have been designed to relate to these packages as far as possible, in both appearance and function. If you are able to use these packages at the level expected by the test, undertaking the test should be straightforward.

Lets have a look: How must you demonstrate
the appropriate use of ICT? Your observation schedule is used by the tutor observing your lesson to help focus the observation and give everyone an equal opportunity to achieve. Looking at your observation schedule for Key Stage 1 can you identify the elements which involve the use of ICT? Task 3 In your groups design a checklist which can be used to ensure you cover all the ICT elements needed for your lessons. Share your ideas Lunch
