Handbook for Education – Bristol Guide 2021-2022

The guide is an essential resource for trainee teachers working towards the Teachers’ Standards for qualified teacher status (QTS). It also helps newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and more experienced teachers have an 'understanding of, and always act within, the statutory frameworks which set out their professional duties and responsibilities' Teachers' Standards. Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs) and Teaching Assistants (TAs) working towards HLTA status will find the guide invaluable in developing knowledge of how 'other frameworks that support the development and well-being of children and young people impact upon their practice' HTLA Professional Standards.

The Bristol Guide provides a succinct overview of all aspects of the education system in England. Complex organisational relationships and areas of policy are presented in a clear and straightforward way. It is an invaluable primer for those new to the teaching profession or those moving from overseas, but is also a very useful reference guide for experienced practitioners and school leaders!

The Bristol Guide enables a focused understanding of the key policies and practice in education in a way that busy people can access, discuss and apply. I have not discovered another publication that can do this so effectively.
